57 min 16 sec US, 2017
Through force of will, keen intellect and intractable faith, Robert Madison overcame significant economic and social barriers to achieve the American dream through architecture, while also making a commitment to extend that dream to others.
A documentary film chronicling the life story of Robert P. Madison, preeminent architect, maverick, patriot & patron of arts and humanities. This is a story about a man who has been instrumental in building Cleveland's new waterfront yet at one time was denied an opportunity to even apply to one of the city's schools of architecture. Despite these and many other challenges, Mr. Madison has reached the pinnacles of professional and personal success. He has designed and built domestic and international structures since 1951. He served as Chairman of the American Institute of Architecture Fellows, lectured worldwide, and received several honorary doctorates and yet still found the time to foster the advancement of the arts, disadvantaged youth, multiculturalism and equality in hiring and promotional practices.
