Architecture+Film: The Competition

Wed, Feb 18 / 7 pm
Directed by Angel Borrego Cubero
2013, Spain, 99 min

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

This film follows the trials and tribulations of five stellar practices (Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel, and Dominique Perrault) competing in a doomed bid to build a new national museum for Andorra back in 2009. There is an air of desperation throughout, as the competing teams grasp blindly for novelty forms, trying to second-guess the desires of a client they have never met, in a context they have never seen, for imaginary future users they will never know. – THE GUARDIAN

*Followed by a panel discussion with moderator Alison Gillmor and Paul Jordan, CEO, Forks North Portage; Johanna Hurme, 5468796 architecture, Grant Van Iderstine, Architecture49, Robert Enright, Professor at the  University of Guelph, art writer and critic and Dr. Stephen Borys, Director, Winnipeg Art Gallery.
