Six acclaimed filmmakers bring their own visual style and artistic approach to the exploration of six different landmark buildings, showing us how they reflect our culture and guard our collective memory. The buildings featured are The Berlin Philharmonic Hall, an icon of modernity; the National Library of Russia, a kingdom of thoughts; Halden Prison, the world's most humane prison; the Salk Institute, an institute for breakthrough science; the Oslo Opera House, a futuristic symbiosis of art and life; and the Centre Pompidou, a modern culture machine.
The ins & outs of modern buildings
- Cathedrals of Culture review by CM
Really enjoyed this for giving the feel & sound of the spaces portrayed. Some of the buildings are fifty years old, but still look as if they were finished this year. It would be interesting to see more in the same vein from other parts of the world - Africa, Asia, Middle East, S America, Australasia.
