Modernism Inc.

Development of a one-hour documentary film that examines the life and work of architect and industrial designer Eliot Noyes.

Modernism, Inc., explores the rise and fall of American Modernism through the lens of one of its most influential practitioners, Eliot Noyes, who built the design programs for the likes of IBM, Westinghouse, and Mobil Oil. The film weaves Noyes’ fascinating personal story with the broader context of corporate America’s fulsome embrace of modernism during the period of postwar economic expansion and culminates in the under-documented backlash against Noyes and his generation of modernists during the counter-cultural upheaval of the Vietnam era.
