The Foundation has previously launched three similar competitions under the themes: “photographing architecture” in 2007, “drawing architecture” in 2008 and “writing about architecture” in 2012.
Architecture is closely related to other art forms – not only to photography, drawing and language, but also to film and music. Architecture speaks to all senses, and it changes expression over time. Architecture is an abstract art form which does not take real shape until occupied and activated by movements through the space.
The previous strong role of architecture on film seems less dominant in new films from the latest decades.
Live images have a special relation to architecture because film is experienced in time and space just as architecture. Film is thus more capable of providing a full spatial experience of architecture compared to photography.
The theme of the competition is the experience of architectural space over time. The task is to create a film sequence of 1-5 minutes which animates architecture by embracing time as the primary dimension.
The competition entries will be evaluated on their artistic quality and ability to inspire a new approach to architecture and the film media.
