The virtual season premiere of Modernism + Film begins with the inspiring documentary Frank Gehry: Building Justice. This film connects architecture with social policy and follows the legendary Frank Gehry (designer of Millennium Park’s Pritzker Pavilion) in 2017 as he sets out to answer the question: Is there a better way to design a prison? Collaborating with architecture students, former inmates, and prison experts, Gehry and his colleagues grapple with complex social, political, emotional, structural, and aesthetic challenges to re-envision the future of incarceration.
