Description

Interplay of architecture and film

  • The excitingly multifaceted interplay between architecture and film
  • Illustrated by Swiss architectural projects of the past 25 years
  • Interview with Christoph Schaub
  • Exhibition at S AM, the Swiss Architecture Museum Basel: November 2015 to February 2016

The moving image harbours considerable potential as an analytical instrument and representational medium for architecture. Following the publications, «Bildbau/Building Images» and «Textbau/Constructing Texts» dealing with the relationship between architecture, photography and text, the S AM now approaches a further medium for conveying building culture: film.

Film and architecture have numerous points where they overlap and coincide, and these are explored in Filmbau. Given its multidimensionality, film is an appropriate medium for realistically reproducing architecture. Furthermore, like the film director, the architect guides sequences of action through spatial structures. Finally, there is the interesting interplay: to what extent does filmic seeing produce new possibilities for seeing architecture?; how do modern media technologies alter the way we look at things?
The projects presented include the Ricola Herb Centre in Laufen (Herzog & de Meuron), the Art Museum in Appenzell (Gigon Guyer) and the Bardill atelier in Scharans (Valerio Olgiati).
