Live 'Life Architecturally'

AMOA-Arthouse's rooftop film series continues tonight

Architecture is all about the marriage of form and finish, but for one pair of avant-garde Australian duo, there's another marriage in the mix: their own.

Architect Robert McBride and his wife, interior designer Debbie Ryan, have made a name for themselves with their groundbreaking designs for schools, office buildings, and homes. And you can learn all about their story in the third installment of AMOA-Arthouse's Rooftop Architecture Film Series, which screens tonight at 8pm.

The series kicked off in March with Making the Modern and continued with a parkour documentary in April, so by now we're right at home among eye-catching designs and modern buildings.

Make yourself at home at the Jones Center tonight, and become a part of this living, breathing issue of Dwell with McBride and Ryan.
