Heinz Emigholz: Architecture as Autobiography

Rental Special

Preeminent documentarian Heinz Emigholz’s films present the 20th century’s most important architects not through explanation or biography, but by using the camera to reveal the structures that define their art. From the churches of Bruce Goff, to the villas of Gabriele D’Annunzio and the bridges of Robert Maillart, each exploratory and contemplative film is devoted to the work of a single architect; as a whole, the series shows us some of the most beautiful buildings of our time. MUBI is proud to present the first part in a retrospective devoted to Emigholz’s series, “Architecture as Autobiography”.
