We are pleased to announce our upcoming documentary film; ‘WHAT WE DO HERE’ will premiere at the 16th International Architecture Biennale in Venice this June.
The film will be screened at the Arsenale site on the afternoon of June 29th followed by a discussion on the topic of modelmaking in architectural education.
The project has been generously supported by
WHAT WE DO HERE
What place is there for physical hand-crafted models in the increasingly digital realm of modern architecture? How does challenging students to look beyond the screen and ‘get their hands dirty’ inform their understanding of and relationship with the structures they are conceiving?
This film explores how aspiring architects approach various stages of modelmaking as they grapple with materials, methods and machines to ultimately reveal the ways in which the models inform their individual growth and understanding. In addition to this it examines the ways that staff integrate practical making into their requirements for student assignments and within their own research projects.
The theme of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale; ‘Free Space’ is presented clearly through ‘WHAT WE DO HERE’ giving a unique insight into a space where the next generation of architects are free to experiment, test, fail, learn and grow in their craft and knowledge.
