Can Brutalism be adapted and updated for the 21st century? This was the challenge of aesthetics, philosophy, and construction that architecture firm 6a had to tackle when creating a new residential court for the famous Churchill College at Cambridge.

Our take

Continuing our series of visionary films from the NYFF’s Projections sidebar is a new work by Ben Rivers. Shot on 16mm and co-produced by MUBI & 6a Architects, it playfully captures the delicate balance not just between past design and new innovation, but between human creation and that of nature.
