OnArchitecture is an online audiovisual archive of architecture, founded in 2012 by chilean architects Felipe De Ferrari and Diego Grass (after working 5 years together as 0300TV) along with psychologist Claudio Mesa. It offers a deep and detailed panorama of the world’s main authors, works, experiences and issues related to the field of architecture. We have produced a series of videos of buildings and interviews with architects, artists, editors and curators from around the world since 2007.

Future Architecture Archive – FAA


Towards a common understanding of Architecture
A collection of video-interviews to authors which will contribute to articulate a common vision for the future of architecture.

Future Architecture Archive (FAA) is a specific video-collection that will be produced in the context of Future Architecture Platform (FAP): an exhibition of a series of interviews and building portraits in video format using the umbrella of this European cultural program.

FAA will be both a spin-off of the platform and a project in its own right, using another type of call and a smaller curatorial approach to encourage discussion. Its main goal will be to establish a basic framework for a common understanding of architecture.

FAP’s selection tells us a lot about the diversity of agendas at the beginning of 21st century. In this context, there is urgency to articulate a shared agenda raised by a diverse group of authors.

Original content will be produced as a series of videos in situ, in order to lay common foundations for what is next and also an invitation to new actors to be part of the Platform. The proposal is framed in the research initiated by OnArchitecture in 2012.



Exhibition held in Solo Galerie, a space for architecture in Paris, France (2016). Entitled ‘OnArchitecture: 15 Works’, it introduced a series of relevant discourses and works around the world, through a series of categories –each one related to a specific room of the gallery-: Agendas, Culture, Labour, Leisure & Living.

Candidates
We will look for a mix between young practitioners and older figures with a critical discourse towards the future.

Display
The idea is that every institution involved in FAA will exhibit the whole collection, not only the ones produced in its own country.
This collection will be exhibited in both interiors or exteriors, collective exhibitions, film screenings and so on, introducing specific displays and curatorial strategies.

Co-Producers.
The material will be co-produced by OA with the institutions interested to be part of this common project.
This material will be exhibited in each institution involved and also in FAP website until the Final Festival (Oct 2017).
The tentative proposal to produce 3 videos per location (interviews / works) in 3 days in each city / country.
i.e. 1: 15 videos with 5 institutions involved in the project
i.e. 2: 30 videos with 10 institutions involved in the project

Methodology
We propose to define a selection of authors in the countries where the institutions interested to be part of the archive are based.
We will look for radical discourses and practices using the research done at OA and the recommendations by local actors.
We will define a sharp set of questions mixing general issues –in tune with the curatorship– and specific ones –related with the profile of each author.
Each video interview will be held in English with a length of approx. 30m.
