Roger D'Astous


Roger D’Astous is one of the most important Canadian Architect of the twentieth century. A student of Frank Lloyd Wright, he worked all his life to create a nordic architecture. Once a starchitect of the sixties, this flamboyant artist then fell from grace before rising again at the dawn of the century. Along with his pavilions at Expo 67 and the Athletes Housing Complex for the 1976 Olympic Games, his residences are sensual vessels and his churches sumptuous spaceships. For the first time on-screen, this film embarks on a journey throughout the exceptional projects of Roger D’Astous. An epic journey with a modern architecture giant, and a frenetic praise for dreaming a better built environment in our post-global era.
