'The Competition' Movie Screening
Join the "The Competition" movie screening together with teachers and students of Professional Ethics and Preparing for Practice course! This takes place on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 5 PM at ARCHIP.
The Competition is the first film documenting the tense developments that characterize architectural contests. A documentary movie constructed as an almost uncomfortable but intensely fascinating account of how some of the best architects in the world, design giants like Jean Nouvel or Frank Gehry, toil, struggle and strategize to beat the competition. While nearly as old as the profession itself, architectural competitions became a social, political and cultural phenomenon of the post-Guggenheim Bilbao museums and real estate bubbles of the recent past. Taking place at the dramatic moment in which the bubble became a crisis, this is the first competition to be documented in excruciatingly raw detail.
Cast of participant architects: Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid, Dominique Perrault, Norman Foster
