Sense of Architecture
WARSAW UNDER CONSTRUCTION 5
The film "Sense of Architecture" shows 42 contemporary architectural projects of Austrian origin. Shooting took place between June 2005 and November 2006.
As an independent work, the film emerged from the material for 57 short films that Heinz Emigholz produced for the travelling exhibition conceived in Graz, Sense of Architecture. The exhibition "Sense of Architecture" was curated by Charlotte Pöchhacker and designed by Alexander Kada. Unlike the exhibition, which grouped the architecture thematically, the new film "Sense of Architecture" assembles the project into a social reality in which modern buildings were constructed for all areas of life.
The film starts with a bell tower in the Seetaler Alps and a construction site and then leads through the various stages of a fictive life: from a kindergarden, a single-family home, a botanical garden, ein track house, a pharmacy, a housing development, a museum for children, an apartment house with a workshop, a dialect institute, an art house, an office building, a shool, a shoe shop, an apartment block, a town hall, a community center, a medical center, past a pedestrian bridge, in a room for studying, an airport tower, a church reconstruction, a community center, a reginal exhibition, a residential area, a city council, a renovated castle, a villa, a restaurant, a hall, a building extension, a justice center, a prison, a cloister, an art house, a hospital, a vacation house, a castle, a museum, a stone house, a nursing home, a crematorium, and to a columbarium.
