PRESIDENT'S LETTER

 

It’s an Honor

The Society of Architectural Historians/Southern California Chapter (SAH/SCC) takes great delight in congratulating Paul Bockhorst, Hon. AIA, on the deserved title of Honorary Member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Paul’s films have been responsible for bringing the significant work of many forgotten California architects to a national stage where they can be appreciated by a new generation of architectural historians, preservationists, and the public.

SAH/SCC has worked with Paul since 2001, when we became fiscal receiver for his documentary “Greene and Greene: The Art of Architecture.” During the course of our 12-year relationship, our organization has known Paul to be of the highest character—as well as a rigorous historian. Paul’s talents manifest themselves in documentary films that make the intellectual capital accessible to professionals and non-professionals alike. His films translate that intellectual capital visually into theexperienceof architecture.

Because of the high quality of Paul’s films, they have been featured on public television stations all over the country and seen by thousands of people who may never have the opportunity to experience, in person, the buildings he features. This is a gift to architectural history and architecture. With visual content finding an increasingly important and powerful place on the Internet, Paul’s contributions have only just begun to reach a global audience. His work will be seen and remembered by future generations. And as a result, so will the work of many significant architects.

Paul’s films are widely available for rent in libraries and for purchase through the SAH/SCC website. We encourage all our members to make them required viewing. And we hope you join us in congratulating Paul.
