Projection / Architecture The Competition

Wat ass Architektur?

Désolé, ce texte n’existe pas en français.

A raw account of how some of the best architects in the world, design giants like Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry or Zaha Hadid, struggle to beat the competition for the National Museum of Art in Andorra. 

While nearly as old as the profession itself, architectural competitions became a social, political and cultural phenomenon of the post-Guggenheim Bilbao building bubble. Taking place at the dramatic moment in which the real estate bubble became a global crisis, this is the first competition to be documented, producing an unclassifiable piece of art that may be an intense thriller, an ethnographic report as well as a cult movie around the icons of the contemporary architecture.

The Competition. Trailer

We are all, in one way or the other, confronted with architecture: We live in apartments and houses, we work in various office buildings, we spend our free time in theatres, swimming pools, restaurants and public spaces. But how much do we really know about the processes of creation and construction of the architectural landscapes that surround us?

Wat ass Architektur? has been initiated to raise questions on various topics related to architecture, while presenting their relevance in a national and international context.
