Architecture in Film: The Fountainhead


Gary Cooper stoically portrays uncompromising architect Howard Roark, a man obedient solely to his own individuality and unfettered expression. Adapted from Ayn Rand's best-selling philosophical allegory, the film depicts Roark's life as a series of trials in which he must defend his beliefs and artistic integrity. Patricia Neal co-stars as the seductively fearsome Dominique Francon, the woman who tries to defeat Roark before falling in love.
