About the Event

This film tells the story of how, in 1947, eleven of the world’s most talented architects (including Ernest Cormier, Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer, and Louis Skidmore) were compelled to work together, overcoming many cultural and individual differences, to design an international forum and symbol for peace—the United Nations headquarters in New York. Rated G.
