Since 2002, the GSA Historic Building Film Series has documented preservation in action at properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Funded with revenue generated from leasing underutilized space in historic buildings to nonfederal entities, the films are part of GSA's efforts to support Executive Order 13287, Preserve America, which encourages Americans to discover and enjoy our nation's heritage. In addition to exploring the history and significance of each highlighted building, these documentaries record rehabilitation work in progress and include interviews with architects and project managers. The detailed visual documentation becomes part of the historical record to guide future preservation and stewardship decisions.
Films highlighting eight of GSA's more than two hundred legacy buildings have been completed under this educational outreach and building documentation initiative. One of two new releases planned for 2012, Victor A. Lundy: Sculptor of Space, captures the recollections of the only living architect for a GSA National Register-listed building, the U.S. Tax Court in Washington D.C. We invite you to watch the preview now, and experience this mid-century feat of engineering through the eyes of its designer.
