Cathedrals of culture

Six episodes for six buildings.
Sei episodi per sei edifici.

The ambitious project, whose exclusively producer is Wim Wenders, has the merit of letting us live a full experience in six of the most well-known buildings of the architecture history which introduce themselves in subjective camera. The 3D experience makes almost real the visit in these places and the score increases the suggestion. These important works tell their life and the stories of which they are witnesses in six episodes by six directors: Berliner Philharmoniker by Hans Scharoun completed in 1967 (Wim Wenders), Rossíyskaya Natsionál’naya Bibliotéka by Yegor Sokolov, San Pietroburgo 1814 (Michael Glawogger); Halden Prison by the architectural Studio EMA, Halden 2010 (Michael Madsen); Salk Institute by Louis Khan, La Jolla 1959 (Robert Redford); Operahuset by Snøhetta architects, Oslo 2008 (Margreth Olin); Centre George Pompidou by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, Paris 1977 (Karim Aïnouz).

L’ambizioso progetto che vede come produttore esecutivo Wim Wenders, ha l’apprezzato merito di far vivere un’esperienza immersiva in sei fra i più noti edifici della storia dell’architettura, che si presentano da sé in soggettiva. L’esperienza del 3D rende quasi reale la visita in questi luoghi e le colonne sonore amplificano la suggestione. Queste importanti opere raccontano la loro vita e le storie di cui sono testimoni in sei singoli episodi firmati da altrettanti registi: Berliner Philharmoniker, di Hans Scharoun completata nel 1967 (Wim Wenders), Rossíyskaya Natsionál’naya Bibliotéka di Yegor Sokolov, San Pietroburgo 1814 (Michael Glawogger); Halden Prison dello Studio EMA, Halden 2010 (Michael Madsen); Salk Institute di Louis Khan, La Jolla 1959 (Robert Redford); Operahuset di Snøhetta architects, Oslo 2008 (Margreth Olin); Centre George Pompidou di Renzo Piano e Richard Rogers, Parigi 1977 (Karim Aïnouz).
