"Thanks to a subtle montage of  her own vintage footage and contemporary testimonies by key witnesses,  Diana Agrest has brilliantly brought back to life a radical foyer of innovation. The unique role the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies has played to shape an intellectual conversation in North America has never been so clearly established."

 — Jean Louis Cohen, Sheldon H. Solow Professor in the History of Architecture, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University

"Diana Agrest's film is a must see, offering an engaging and provocative dialogue between rare archival footage of the famed Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies and the insightful reflections of most of the main protagonists more than a quarter century after the Institute's demise.   The result is not only a powerful historical evocation but a subtle call for an engaged architectural culture for the present able to rival the vibrant caldron of ideas and personalities that was the think tank, school, exhibition space, party venue, debate center on 40th Street."
