ARCHITECT, PAINTER, AND WRITER JEF7REY HILDNER launched The Architect Painter Press in 2005 under the banner, “Live Brave.” The Architect Painter Press presents Hildner’s buildings, paintings, and insights—work that reflects his focus on the visible and invisible architecture of life and art. The Architect Painter Press also seeks to present the work of other artists. Current titles range from his pamphlet, Picasso Lessons, to his books Daedalus 9, Garches 1234, Henry Trucks — Painter, Metaphysical Warrior, and Visual Ef9ects. His work also appears in a wide array of other venues—for example, Architectural Record, Journal of Architectural Education, Any, Oz, The Christian Science Monitor, IMDb, and Global Architecture Houses. The book Architectural Formalism, by Hakan Anay, features Hildner’s essay “Formalism: Move|Meaning” alongside essays by theorists Rosalind Krauss, Peggy Deamer, Robert Slutzky, and Colin Rowe. Hildner received an Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture award for excellence in teaching. His project Dante|Telescope House won the New Jersey Chapter of The American Institute of Architects “Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence in Design.” Hildner also writes under the names Madison Gray and Eliot Plum. He paints under the name Henry Trucks. Hildner’s one-word life theme—architecture—shapes his quest, his outlook, and his output, including his work as screenwriter and story architect. He earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Princeton University.

AIA AWARD WINNER
EXCELLENCE IN ARCHITECTURE: "Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence in Design" | 1995
—The Highest Honor Awarded by the New Jersey Chapter of The American Institute of Architects. Awarded to
Dante|Telescope House
aka the Zowe House


A shard of ancient suns the steel beam telescope of the Dante|Telescope Monolith points to the North Star.



_



Sand-blasted glass at the front door to Dante|Telescope House depicts an abstract plan of the Dante Monolith.
The panel presents key elements of the building's aesthetic system, proportional system, and poetic system.
The reference to Dante
announces a core theme of the project: the ancient, original connection between literature and
architecture, wherein the first buildings were books, and the first books were buildings.

And the first line from Dante's Divine Comedy, Io non so ben ridir com'i' v'entrai ("I do not yet know how I entered") etched
in the glass at the entry of the house hints at an even deeper, metaphysical premise, signified by the N (North) a
nd the
telescope.

Architecture orients us in the worldand inspires us to look deep into the nature of reality.

COURSES

CINEMATECTURE | Motion & eMotion: Morphotion
www.thearchitectpainter.com/ARLINGTON/studio2001THRESHOLD.htm
 


Seminar | Architecture Theory | Graduate + Upper Level Undergraduate—
for example:
Film Architecture | CINEMATECTURE. Seminar on literal and metaphorical connections between architecture and film. Significant films, such as Strike, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Metropolis, Berlin: Symphony of a Great City, Man with the Movie Camera, Playtime, Stardust Memories, and Blade Runner, in which architecture and urbanism are major visual and psychological dramatis personae and/or the architecture of the visual frame is central to a film's aesthetic structure, provide the basis for examination of the essential problem of Story and Form. In addition to emphasis on the interplay between action and environment and phenomena of cinematic-architectonic  space and form, the course also addresses the origins of motion in modern art, the development of a grammar of narrative/visual devices, and parallel developments in allied plastic arts. The course includes film viewing (including independent and web-based films), lectures, and discussion of readings. Students are introduced to specific software applications  as environments in which to produce and present a digital-based research or creative project.
