Storyline

When a couple sets out to build their dream house, they enlist the services of a visionary modernist architect, whose soaring ideas are matched only by his ego. The woman is swept away by this uncompromising creative artist whose personality provides a stark contrast to her practical husband's. She is so taken she hardly notices the Architect is building HIS dream house.

Trivia

The architect's office is actually an architectural studio used by students from the University of Washington School of Architecture. In the background is the historic College Inn guesthouse originally built for the 1909 Alaska-Yukon Exposition. An architectural landmark in itself. See more »

Everything was rushed--no substance, plot, character-little even of the philosophy it peddles
26 April 2018 | by edmundgrieg-80388See all my reviews

There are two characters in this movie. The husband needed to be fleshed out, or he was just an annoying one-dimensional sideshow. There was also a baby that came along and was ignored. There was a twist at the end. Even the obvious romance was glossed over. If the film was not gonna give us anything else, that would have sufficed. No. One shag and they don't talk until the end. When the twist all happens in two minutes. I didn't have a problem with the things the architect says, but this isn't a message about art either, because that was also not given time. Just a bit more footage would have made it at least make sense. Surely savaged by the editor, to make it quippy and funny, when it didn't need to be.
