Dossier : L'architecture en six films

Iconic works, self-inflated egos, criticisms and emotions, angles and subjects of architectural films abound. As we are all stuck at home, why not take the opportunity to increase your culture in this area? A time conducive to the dissemination of major architectural reports that the Muuuz editorial staff never ceases to delight. Touching sketches from Frank Gehry to the very instructive series "Architectures" of ARTE via the UFO The Competition, find our selection of architectural films to see and review.

Sydney Pollack, Frank Gehry sketches 2015.
Known for making the film Out of Africa in 1985, American actor and filmmaker Sydney Pollack made his first documentary and his last film in 2006 with Frank Gehry sketches [Sketches of Frank Gehry]. While Sydney Pollack does not specialize in documentaries or architecture, the very famous architect Frank Gehry entrusts his friend with the production of a documentary on his work. This documentary captures the creative process and the architectural approach of Frank Gehry, but the interviews between the two friends, which punctuate the film, testify to the director's partiality.

Kaspar Astrup Schröder, Big Time, in the mind of Bjarke Ingels 2015.
the documentary Big Time, in the mind of Bjarke Ingels by the Danish artist Kaspar Astrup Schröder paints an intimate portrait of the Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, nicknamed Big. Result of seven years of investigation, the film traces the professional adventures and the moods of this genius of contemporary architecture. Although the biopic-like documentary sparked controversial reactions when it was released, it at least has the merit of really immersing us "In the mind of Bjarke Ingels".

Gilles Coudert, The Le Corbusier Spirit 2015.
Directed by filmmaker Gilles Coudert and narrated by actor Charles Berling, L 'Le Corbusier spirit brings together testimonies from several actors in the art world and the account of the director's adolescence in Firminy. This unique documentary is valid for its sensitive approach, because it invites you to discover Le Corbusier through various critical points of view. He thus proposes to understand what is at stake in the very buildings of the Swiss architect.

Angel Borrego Cubero, The Competition 2015.
Documentary by Madrid architect Angel Borrego Cubero has everything from contemporary drama. Staging the biggest stars of the profession in a fierce fight, the report closely follows the competition of the development of the National Museum of Andorra. Carts, ego battles and projects all crazier than each other, such is the beautiful program proposed by Cubero. A film not found that the editorial staff of Muuuz is happy to summarize for you.

ARTE, The "Architectures" collection
Proposed by the duo Richard Copans and Stan Neumann, the "Architectures" collection retraces the History of Architecture through 26-minute films, all devoted to an iconic building ranging from Antiquity to contemporary creations. Broadcast on Arte, these mini-reports dissect and popularize the design of an architectural flagship, "Foundations to the roofs". An essential series of the discipline to find in 9 volumes which promises to make us travel in these times of confinement.

Jean-Luc Godard, Concrete operation 2015.
Focused on the concrete phase of the construction of the Grande-Dixence dam, the documentary by Jean-Luc Godard declines all the codes that have made the great filmmaker famous: raw modernity, poetry, musicality and original shots. Enough to increase its architectural and cinematographic culture in one go!
