On Monday, June 6th, Fundació Mies van der Rohe in Barcelona will host a screening of The Architects by Amie Siegel.
The Architects, Commissioned by Storefront as part of OfficeUS (the US Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale), cuts transversally through the city of New York, producing a continuous image of the global architecture office today.
Moving through several architecture studios, from Fifth Avenue to Downtown to Brooklyn, the film depicts the operational territories and landscapes of worldwide architectural production from New York. As a singular unfolding visual, the film deploys silent conversations among the architectures, locations, objects, and characters that inhabit its frames, and raises questions of scale, agency, and power.
