Video: Caught in the Act / LEESER Architecture

Watch Thomas Leeser of LEESER Architecture share some insight into what architecture means and how his firm expresses that philosophy.  One of our favorite lines is when Leeser stated, “We are not architects with a particular style; we are architects with a particular message.”  The clip shares some background pertaining to Leeser’s Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, New York that exemplifies the firm’s idea of a changing continuous media surface and ties the conceptual understanding between film and architecture.  What are your thoughts on Leeser’s closing comment when talking about the Bric media center and Urban Glass project – “Our work can influence and change the world around us, there is a really impact…it’s not just like another building” – perhaps, not just in terms of Leeser’s work, but for the field of architecture at large.
