I came across an exhibit of Mockbee's and his student's several years ago at Max Protetch Gallery in NYC. Many of the structures are planned to be easily built with materials easily available to the rural poor, like cut tin, spare tires and earth.
Even so, the resulting homes are filled with invention whimsy and dignity.
I would love to see this film and definitely would try if I was in Pittsburgh.
