Architecture and Design Movies for Weekend

So weekend has finally arrived and some of us bit confused about what to do. So, I thought about posting about movies i saw recently which can give you enjoyment and inspiration for the week ahead of you at work 🙂 So here goes the list:

1. “The Fall” by Tarsem Singh

 is an amazing film released in 2006 and proved to be very powerful film visually. Director of this movie made great effort to travel around the world to find best places and locations which are visually appealing and inspiring to people watching this movie. The film includes footage shot in over 20 different countries, with places such as the Valkenberg Hospital in Cape Town, Taj Mahal, or the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. “Blue City” shown in the movie, is the actual Jodhpur, an old city of Rajasthan, where local people painted their houses in blue colour thinking they would prevent the heat effects. It is not only about the diversity of these spaces but also the way that Singh is able to put all those elements together as part of a massive surrealistic world.

2. How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr Foster?

The film traces the rise of one of the world’s premier architects, Norman Foster, and his unending quest to improve the quality of life through design. Portrayed are Foster’s origins and how his dreams and influences inspired the design of emblematic projects such as the largest building in the world Beijing Airport, the Reichstag, the Hearst Building in New York and works such as the tallest bridge ever in Millau France. In the very near future, the majority of mankind will abandon the countryside and live entirely in cities. Foster offers some striking solutions to the problems that this historic event will create.
