If a work can be photographed, drawn, or expressed in words, it can also be the star of a film. This can be seen in Arquitectura en Corto, a Spanish cycle of short films about innovation and trends in contemporary architecture.
“The eruption and widespread availability of social media/mobile videos coupled with the need to illustrate and present innovative projects drives the union between architecture and these mediums,” explains Roca Gallery and Technal, the organizers behind Arquitectura en Corto.
Motivated by the next edition set to come out in October, we have chosen 7 short films from the cycle’s first two editions that show everything from the transformation of Europe into a tourism hub to a house constructed in 80 days.
Terramotourism | Left Hand Rotation
On November 1, 1755, an earthquake completely destroyed Lisbon. Today, the city trembles again under a surge of tourism that has brought the city to cruising speed. Left Hand Rotation, the film’s creator, is an artistic collective that develops projects that bring together intervention, investigation, and video handling.
How to Build a House in 80 Days | Un día en la nieve
The film shows the journey of b home, a house designed by Sergio Baragaño, built in Madrid and transported via highway to its final destination, all in less than 4 months, with no delays or changes in budget.
