Sadly, much of Long Island’s rich heritage of midcentury modern architecture has disappeared due to redevelopment and natural disaster. Modern Tide: Midcentury Architecture seeks to highlight some of the region’s best work as a way to bring awareness and appreciation for such architectural achievements. The film explores the work of the region’s best postwar architects and designers, including Albert Fey, Frank Lloyd Wright, Marcel Breuer, Andrew Geller, Philip Johnson, Charles Gwathmey and others.

Jake Gorst has spent the past two decades researching and documenting midcentury modern architecture in print and film, including the work of his grandfather, architectural designer Andrew Geller. Gorst is an Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker and the Director of Mainspring Pictures Ltd.
