Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander and Denise Scott Brown may not be household names, but architecture and urban planning aficionados likely know these women have worked with some of the greatest architects of our time, including the likes of Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn and Robert Venturi. In the course of their inspiring careers, they have left an indelible mark on several cities across North America and Europe while finding their own voices in the male-dominated world of architecture. Through original interviews, archival material and stunning cinematography, filmmaker Joseph Hillel uncovers how each of these independent thinkers has been working, observing and thinking about the transformations shaping the city of today and tomorrow for over 70 years. As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, the insights of these forward-looking women who have built social and environmental values into their work seem relevant now more than ever. CITY DREAMERS is above all inspired by what has united these four women throughout their careers: the “dream” of a fundamentally human and inclusive city.
