in short:

The Closer You Look is an abstract, impressionistic, view of a notable example of Brutalist architecture in Boston.

Description:

The Closer You Look is an abstract, impressionistic, view of a notable example of Brutalist architecture in Boston. Ned Daly uses the 1971 Government Services Center by Paul Rudolph as a point of departure for an exploration of what it might mean to look more closely at the world around us. The film’s release now, (January 2020) is especially timely since the Commonwealth has announced plans to “redevelop” the site by tearing down a portion of the structure. The building (also known as the Hurley and Lindemann buildings) is a keystone of Boston’s Government Center and has been both lauded and reviled for decades.“We are hardly equipped to verbalize the range of impressions the Lindemann’s  particular space makes on us”Harvard Design Magazine

Tokyo Ride

Duration:
90 min
Director:
Louise Lemoine & Ila Bêka
Country of production:
in short:

Revisiting the genre of the road movie in a very diaristic and personal way, the film takes us on board of Ryue Nishizawa's vintage Alfa Romeo for a day long wandering in the streets of Tokyo.

Description:

After the multi awarded Moriyama San, Tokyo Ride is a new step of Bêka & Lemoine's immersion within Tokyo's busy daily life. Revisiting the genre of the road movie in a very diaristic and personal way, the film takes us on board of Ryue Nishizawa's vintage Alfa Romeo for a day long wandering in the streets of Tokyo.

More than a portrait, in the classical sense, of one of the most talented and celebrated Japanese architect of today, the film renders in its pure spontaneity the experience of this friendly urban drift. Ryue Nishizawa narrates along the way his strong relationship with his home town through some sites he personally affectionates, buildings that have influenced him, and some of his own architecture projects.

The film questions how rooted architecture practice is and how much the built and cultural environment feeds and shapes our imagination.

Villa Empain

Duration:
24
Director:
Katharina Kastner
Country of production:
Belgium
in short:

Villa Empain tells a story of survival. Villa Empain was a passion, a vision, a plan, a home, an artwork. It is a heartfelt dream that was abandoned. Villa Empain, today, looks like it did in the 1930s, but it has turned into another entity held by the same fundament.

Description:

Villa Empain tells a story of survival.

Concrete marble, brick and steel: little else made by human hands seems as stable, as immutable, as a building. Yet the life of any structure is neither fixed nor timeless. Outliving their original contexts and purposes, buildings are forced to adapt to each succeeding age. To survive, they must become shapeshifters.

From a static idea in 1934, Villa Empain has turned into a living organism in the decades to come. The camera touches gently upon its textures as if to glimpse the moments they witnessed, to read the inner meaning of time.

Villa Empain was a passion, a vision, a plan, a home, an artwork. It is a heartfelt dream that was abandoned. Villa Empain, today, looks like it did in the 1930s, but it has turned into another entity held by the same fundament.

The film compares the life of Louis Empain and his creation. It bears witness to how a fixed idea, an architect's dream, disappears in favour of a living architecture. The work is activated.

Where·to with history?

Duration:
1:02:47
Director:
Hans Christian Post
Country of production:
Germany
in short:

Description:

Dresden has in recent years grown both famous and infamous. Famous for its attempt to meticulously reconstruct its once bombed-out historical center and bring the colorful baroque settings of the 18th century back to life. Infamous for the right-wing-surge that has since 2015 swept the city and made it a center of far-right activity in Germany and Europe.One the one hand, the city exemplifies the ‘blooming landscapes’ that everyone hoped the German reunification in 1990 would bring about. On the other hand, it seems to testify to all the things that have gone wrong in Germany, Europe, and the world since that time.Every Monday evening, the two realities clash dramatically, as the right-wing Pegida movement takes to the picturesque squares and streets to rally against foreigners, refugees, politicians, and the media. And although a majority in the population deplores the development, they are clueless as to what can be done against it. If only the right-wing movement would stop misusing the historical settings and silently vanish by itself.But do the two realities oppose each other? Or are they rather interrelated? Has the attempt to architecturally reproduce what was lost in 1945 been instrumental in bringing back the political ghosts of that very same era?Through interviews with stakeholders, urban planners, politicians and critics, Where·to with history? looks into the possible connections between architecture and politics in Dresden. It shows how architecture has indeed helped pave the way for the current right-wing-surge. But more generally, it depicts a city caught up in painful dilemmas and blind alleys in its ongoing attempt to overcome a destructive and ideologically charged past that just won’t go away.

in short:

A film about our world of instant, hyper-personalised consumerism, where a thousand thousand odysseys are made by data and objects every second of the day.

Description:

We live in a world of instant, hyper-personalised consumerism, where a thousand thousand odysseys are made by data and objects every second of the day. In the not-too-distant-future, the city itself is a giant fulfilment centre. On reclaimed, re-wilded and digitally augmented land, pieces of the world are grown, dug up, melted, moulded, soldered, packaged and distributed by sentient machine networks. Everything is counted; every box on every shelf has its place in the system – and so do we. Maybe these production and distribution technologies will bring the world to our door without the carbon-miles, shrinking the world to a city and its surrounds. Or maybe they will disconnect us from our environments and turn the ‘source’ into a thing of myth. All this, to fulfil our smallest desires — say, a single egg for poached eggs on toast.
