An exhibition, "RE : CITY. VIDEO STORIES ON THE ARCHITECTURE TO COME", conceived by Image and made in collaboration with The Architecture Player, offers additional elements for discussion and reflection.
RE : CITY has been conceived as an interlocutory device aiming at investigating how architecture visions are expressed by architects, in video. Projects are offered as a 40 years long journey through the most diverse and speculative explorations of the future living environment, ranging in scale from the Planet, the Megacity, the City, all the way to the Building and the Apartment. From early architecture films by Superstudio to the most recent videos by BIG, through other great visions by some of the greatest architectural offices of our times.
Among the short films' authors, we con mention: Superstudio, MVRDV, FR-EE Fernando Romero Enterprise, Squint/Opera, John Szot, ArtefactoryLab, Taller de Casquería, Jordi Bernadó, 15-L. Films, MIR, Andrés Jaque/Office for Political Innovation, UNStudio, Imagen Subliminal, Gabriel Kogan, Pedro Kok, Yung Ho Chang.
