“Frey” Documentary Series Trailer from Mainspring Pictures LLC on Vimeo.

Albert Frey was an unpretentious Swiss-born mid-twentieth-century architect who developed an extraordinary design style by blending industrial techniques and a love of nature. Released in early 2018, the film (the first of a two-part series) explores Frey’s early life and work in Europe and America where he was the envoy of European modernism. His architectural endeavors in the 1930s included, in New York, the famed Aluminaire House and the Canvas Weekend House, and in Palm Springs, the Kocher Samson Building.

The film outlines Frey’s collaborative efforts with well-known architects of the time, including A. Lawrence Kocher and Le Corbusier, among others. It contains never-before published archival imagery, as well as beautiful architectural footage.

Albert Frey: The Architectural Envoy— Part 1, was produced by Design Onscreen, a private operating non-profit foundation dedicated to producing, promoting, and preserving high-quality films on architecture and design. Learn more at
