ArCH Film Festival @ Honeymoon Cafe
Nov 10 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The modern city is controlled by political, financial and environmental factors that force neighborhoods into patterns of decline and regrowth. Architects throughout history – whether building anew or rectifying the past – believe in the utopian ideal that architecture can influence society for the better. This year’s ArCH film series investigates how citizens, developers, historians, politicians, designers and community leaders activate the city within the parameters of policy.
