Citizen architect : Samuel Mockbee and the spirit of the Rural Studio( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1993, late architect Samuel Mockbee founded Auburn University's Rural Studio, an education program in which architecture students leave the university setting to live and work in rural Hale County, Alabama. In one of the poorest parts of America, a community in which 1 in 4 citizens live in poverty, students use donated and recycled materials to build homes and community facilities. The film presents the story of students' experiences during a typical year in one of the most prolific and inspirational design-build outreach programs ever established, including historical interviews with Mockbee. Infusing the film with a larger discussion of architecture's role in addressing issues of poverty, class, race, education, social change, and citizenship are other architects and designers who share praise and criticism of the Rural Studio
The Home maker : Samuel "Sambo" Mockbee( Visual )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Award-winning architect Samuel Mockbee had a practical approach to architecture that reflected his lofty ideals. Based out of the Rural Studio he cofounded at Auburn University, Mockbee and his students designed and built - free of charge - homes and other structures using recyclable materials for people in one of Alabama's poorest areas, Hale County. In this program filmed a year before Mockbee's death, ABC News correspondent Robert Krulwich talks with the architect about his philosophy and goals in a field that often forgets that buildings are for people, not other architects"--Container
