The art of architecture comes alive in this collection of short films on the world's most pivotal examples of architectural construction. Each segment focuses on a structure chosen for its unique aesthetic and for the extraordinary role it has played in the evolution of architectural design. Each building or site is explored from top to bottom, examined from the foundation to the roof, and dissected from model to completed structure. The Alhambra in Grenada, The House of Sugimoto, The Reception and Congress Building in Rome, The Yoyogi Olympic Gymnasiums, The Villa Barbaro, and The Phaeno not only presented practical problems for the architects who designed them but also inspired their creativity. Explore the roots of their ambition and inspiration with Architectures 5.
