Architecture | Essay | Film
Architecture | Essay | Film is a one-day symposium bringing together filmmakers, architects and theorists to discuss the role of the ‘essay film’ in architecture. Originally coined by the German artist and filmmaker Hans Richter, the term essay film describes an intimate, allusive and idiosyncratic genre at the margins between fiction and documentary. Although under-theorised the essay film has a long history as a ‘form that thinks and thought that forms’ according to French film essayist Jean-Luc Godard. Architecture | Essay | Film will focus on essay films that take as their subject matter architecture or the city, what we call ‘architectural essay films’. We have asked our speakers to reflect on: What are the characteristics of the architectural essay film? Do architectural essay films unlock the storytelling, political and philosophical subconscious of architecture? Can architectural essay films be seen as a design research method, bridging theory and practice, as well as filmmaking and architectural proposition?
