Architecture Film Festival London 2017

Architecture & Memory

Programme at the Bargehouse

We experience our built environment in very different ways, and from very early on in our lives. Places embedded with tradition, our history, feelings and our own identities. These elements are impossible to dissociate from architecture. This selection celebrates the importance of architecture in our lives and memories.

BARGEHOUSE, Room 7, Sunday 11 June 2017

Based on a text by Kjetil A. Jakobsen, the film is shot in the government quarters in Oslo, which was partly destroyed by the terrorist attacks of July 22nd, 2011. It tells the story of these buildings – of their origin and of the artistic vision of architect Erling Viksj√ł which included murals drawn by Picasso. It also tells the story of the times they were built under and of the uncertain future that awaits them.
