In Autumn 2014 The Architecture Foundation's Urban Pioneers programme is heading to Thamesmead, where we will be working with a group of young people to make a film that investigates the local built environment and issues it faces.
A collaborative project with emerging Finnish architects, Aarti, Ollila & Ristola to design and build a permanent Floating Viewpoint structure for Camley Street Natural Park in London’s King’s Cross.
A pair of films exploring the meeting of dreams with globalised realities, unfolding within fantastical stage sets of architectural facsimiles. Set in a Beijing themepark composed of recreated global architectural icons, Jia Zhangke's The World offers a mesmerising allegory of desire, globalisation and urban life. Synder's artwork portrays a Romanian oligarch’s fantastical construction of the ranch from the American TV show Dallas.
An experimental investigation of modernity via architectural form, Emigholz’ employs his signature ‘frame tale’ of moving photographs to produce an abstracted visual essay, forensically observing architectures of power and ideologies made concrete. We are delighted to present the film's UK premiere, accompanied by a Q&A with the director.
As part of Spotlight's summer holiday programme, The Architecture Foundation worked with a group of young people who live or study around Poplar to critically explore the area through a series of free creative workshops.
Rotterdam-based architecture office Superuse Studios has been commissioned to design new entry structures for the Gibbon’s Rent public space in London Bridge.
This Autumn, The Architecture Foundation’s celebrated Architecture on Film season goes monthly, including a global selection of feature films, experimental documentaries and artworks by Heinz Emigholz, Jia Zhangke, Sean Snyder and James Benning.
We are now recruiting for our Thamesmead Urban Pioneers programme. If you are aged 16-19 and interested in taking part please get in touch with Aislinn by 20 September 2014.
