"Coast Modern" is an independent documentary that spans three generations of modernist architecture along the Pacific Northwest coastline from LA to Vancouver.

The film gives history and showcases pioneers of this particular style while taking you directly inside some of these architectural marvels. It also includes interviews with some of the most respected and noteworthy names in architecture such as Ray Kappe, James Steele and Barbara Lamprecht, among others.
