Six short films about Architecture plus ....
marklear-1 from Australia
1 November 2014
This is a long documentary (150 minutes plus) which is made up of six
shorter separate documentaries, each featuring a different building,
and directed by a different (often well- known) director. They are all
narrated very well, and often the "narrator" is the building itself.
Most people (even those of us from Australia) will recognize some of
these iconic buildings. The cinematography is outstanding, and we
really get to know each building during its segment. The individual
styles of presentation vary from one segment to another, and, in my
opinion, some work better than others, but the very good ones are
excellent. One in particular, is quite astonishing. (You will know
which one I reckon!) So, if you have a liking for architecture of
varied styles and purposes, enjoy design and wonder about how a
building can shape its surroundings, this will appeal.
