Samuel Mockbee sits down with Charlie Rose sometime in 200 [I believe]. If you’d like to skip ahead to Mockbee’s segment, it starts around the 40 minute mark.

Quote of the Day


“Architecture has to be greater than just architecture. It has to address social values, as well as technical and aesthetic values. On top of that, the one true gift that an architect has is his or her imagination. We take something ordinary and elevate it to something extraordinary.”

~ Samuel Mockbee

Documentary: SNAKEBIT

SNAKEBIT: A documentary film on renowned architect Samuel Mockbee and the spirit of the Rural Studio.

Once you go to the rural studio and you get a chance to experience not only designing it on paper, but getting it built – and have the pleasure of people coming in and really admiring what you’ve done and appreciative of what you’ve done – that’s a great feeling, and you can’t replace it. And once you’ve had that, you’re snake bit after that… the passion is going to be there.

~ Samuel Mockbee

About time, I say.
