Rick Joy: Interludes

Washington, D.C. Premiere An architect based in Tucson, Arizona, Rick Joy owes his reputation to his innovative residential designs that respond gracefully to their desert environment. In this film, Joy takes viewers through the Desert Nomad House, built in 2005, which is composed of three rusted steel cubes gently set within a dense growth of saguaro cacti. The film also features several additional projects: the Ventana Canyon Residence (2007) and Tucson Mountain House (2001), which Joy built with rammed earth, tamping down a mix of soil and a stabilizer to create thick walls with thermal properties. In 2009, Joy completed his first project in the Northeast, a house in Woodstock, Vermont, revealing his ability to sensitively design according to varied physical contexts. Directed by Muffie Dunn. Produced by Edgar B. Howard.

Introduced by Elizabeth Wilkie, Associate Public Programs Coordinator, National Building Museum. Discussion with Susan Piedmont-Palladino, Curator, National Building Museum, follows screenings.
