Getting Frank Gehry
Director: Sally Aitken
59 min / 2015 / Australia
The University of Technology, Sydney’s new business school, is Frank Gehry’s daring ‘Treehouse project’, otherwise known as the 'crumpled brown paper bag’ to its critics. At first sight, the school will almost certainly shock anyone not already familiar with Gehry’s work elsewhere around the world. Designed to be radical inside and out, the building is sure to provoke conflicts for decades, and yet is highly likely to be hailed as a masterpiece of early 21st century architecture, just as so many of his other creations have already been. The film follows the drama as Gehry’s vision for this commission is realized. Through the construction of this building, we examine his challenging work over a period of 40 years. Four key phases of creativity, epitomized by four great buildings, The Gehry House, The Vitra Museum, The Guggenheim Bilbao and MIT’s Stata Centre, chart the evolution of ideas over a lifetime of controversy to play out on the downtown Sydney construction site. Drawing on a life's work defined by controversial and ground-breaking ideas, the world's greatest architect has inaugurated his first Australian building - and debate still rages over whether it is eyesore or icon.
Drone Cities
Director: Oliver Manzi
2017 / 15 min / UK
As drones increasingly become part of the fabric of modern life, Dezeen asks: how are they going to change architecture? A variety of experts in the field speak to us about how drones will change the way we see and construct buildings, and how the cities of the future will be transformed by a new kind of traffic.
