Architecture+Film: Architecture of Infinity

Sat, Nov 16 / 7 pm
Directed by Christoph Schaub
2018, Switzerland, 86 min

Beyond the seeing and explaining of buildings, this architecture documentary deals with a very specific aspect of the effects of space: transcendence. Filmmaker Christoph Schaub starts his personal journey through time and space in his childhood, when his fascination with sacred buildings began – and his wonder at beginnings and ends. Schaub explores, together with the architects Peter Zumthor, Peter Märkli and Álvaro Siza Vieira, the artists James Turrell and Cristina Iglesias and drummer virtuoso Jojo Mayer, the magic of sacred spaces, defined here as far more than church buildings. Who owns spirituality? The film follows “spiritual life” in architecture and the fine arts, but also in nature, and literally lifts it over and above the limits of thinking.

Architecture+Film, an ongoing series which focuses on architecture and design, is co-presented by Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, a charitable organization dedicated to advancing the awareness and appreciation of Winnipeg’s built environment through public education.

 

Reviews

Art approaches the sacred in Christoph Schaub’s breathless documentary. He’s a lover of beauty and a seeker of the divine, and this profile of contemporary religious architecture offers rewards for the senses as well as for the soul.
