Buildings by Samuel G. and William B. Wiener made the city of Shreveport in the 1930s an early centre of modern American architecture.

After visiting Bauhaus, the most prestigious European school of design, both brothers became the most innovative and productive architects in the south of the US. Residential, commercial as well as public buildings designed in between the 1930s until 1960s managed to keep up with the progressive European architecture and at the same time adjust to the local environment. The story explores these forgotten pioneers of American modernism.
