In South Korea, to refine the agenda for the Seoul Architecture Biennale.

October 23, 2015
Marco Brizzi, director at Image and editor-in-chief at The Architecture Player, is in Seoul, South Korea, invited by Young Joon Kim and Alejandro Zaera-Polo to participate in a series of meetings aimed at refining the agenda and the topics for the Seoul Architecture Biennale, scheduled to open in 2017. Several items are being discussed, also on the occasion of a two-day symposium that sees the participation, among others, of Aaron Betsky, Beatriz Colomina, Joseph Grima, Francisco Sanin, Saskia Sassen, and Mark Wigley.

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.

All exhibited works are part of the Architecture Player project www.architectureplayer.com

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.

Image participates in ARQUITETURAS Film Festival in Lisbon, Portugal.

September 16, 2015
Image and The Architecture Player will be in Lisbon, Portugal to participate in ARQUITETURAS Film Festival with a program of architecture videos selected from our archive. ARQUITETURAS consists in four days of screenings and talks to explore connections between architecture and the moving image.

Image has been following the evolution of this phenomenon, collecting and selecting the most convincing videos made by architects or by authors directly involved by the designers, since 1997, when Marco Brizzi started the BEYOND MEDIA festival in Florence, Italy. The festival launched an intense and methodical search for original contents to be shared in a series of venues to trigger discussions with experts in various fields, involving wide audiences.

This event is part of the Architecture Player Public Session, a program developed by Image to increase interaction between architecture and the public.

IaN+. Hospital of the Sea, Naples, Italy.

August 31, 2015
The new Hospital of the Sea in Naples, designed by IaN+ (Carmelo Baglivo, Luca Galofaro, Stefania Manna), was recently opened in March 2015. A new public square joins the city to the hospital accompanying people inside a building which distributes the access and service functions around a bright entrance hall split over three levels. Colored light invades the large hall where the space seems to widen and deform, expanding the horizontal plane along paths that diagonally cross the surfaces of the two underground floors.

Image MEDIA AGENCY, in charge of communication for this recent project, is ready to provide materials on it to interested journalists. Please visit www.image-web.org/press_area/projects or contact us at press@image-web.org to receive the full press kit.

Image participates in IN\VISIBLECITIES urban multimedia festival in Gorizia, Italy.

May 26, 2015
On Wednesday June 3, Image and The Architecture Player will be in Gorizia, Italy to participate in the IN\VISIBLECITIES urban multimedia festival with a program of architecture videos selected from our archive. In\Visiblecities consists in five days of workshops, installations, live performances and shows that will involve artists from all around Europe to explore connections between visible and invisible cities through art and multimedia languages. 

Following the main theme of In\Visiblecities, the Architecture Player curated a selection of architecture videos offering the audience a chance to reflect on public space and the way it can be perceived. The chosen short films show examples in a variety of places all over the world, where people take advantage from public space by confidently using its structures, independently from them to be permanent or temporary ones. This screening is an occasion to observe emerging sensitivities that emerge when a community and designed spaces interact.

This event is part of the Architecture Player Public Session, a program developed by Image to increase interaction between architecture and the public.
