Official Trailer for 'An Engineer Imagines' Doc Homage to Peter Rice
"I think Peter Rice was like a magician. He had tricks." Music Box Films has debuted an official US trailer for a documentary titled An Engineer Imagines, which originally opened in the UK + Ireland over a year ago. An Engineer Imagines is a cinematic homage to an individual named Peter Rice, the distinguished structural engineer behind some of the 20th century’s most iconic structures – such as the Sydney Opera House, The Pompidou Centre, La Defense, and the Lloyd's Building. Directed by filmmaker / photographer Marcus Robinson, the film uses stunning time-lapse photography and revealing interviews to tell the story of a genius who stood in the shadow of architectural icons. Most people probably don't know who Peter Rice is, but they definitely know the iconic structures he helped build. Looks like a fascinating and inspiring film.
