Sense of Architecture
The Heinz Emigholz Collection • Documentary, 01-Jan-2009
42 contemporary architectural projects of Austrian origins. As an independent work, the film emerged from the material for 57 short films that Heinz Emigholz produced for the exhibition Sense of Architecture conceived in Graz. Unlike the exhibition, which grouped the architecture thematically, the film assembles the project into a social reality in which modern buildings were constructed for all areas of life.
"By shunning still photography and talking heads, Emigholz presents the spaces in a more ambiguous, less mediated fashion, allowing the viewer to construct a personal sense of the designer’s creative voice". - Film Journey
