September 21 – "Bird's Nest: Herzog & de Meuron in China," a 2008 documentary  following Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron during the creation of China's National Stadium, the architectural centerpiece of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.  A short presentation by Peter Wong, Associate Professor and Graduate Program Coordinator of the School of Architecture at UNC Charlotte, will precede the film.          

October 19 – "Philip Johnson: Diary of an Eccentric Architect," is a fascinating look into the mind of one of the  most creative and significant architects. Philip Johnson was always on the forefront of stylistic change, and his property in New Canaan, Connecticut, is a kind of laboratory where Johnson was his own best client. It was there that he built the famous Glass House that he resided in for so many years.
