The workshop is dedicated to architectural short films as a means to explore the expressive and analytical possibilities of video to investigate architecture and its multiple implications. 

The Architecture Film Summer School is promoted and organized by MAXXI for its second edition. The workshop is dedicated to architectural short films as a means to explore the expressive and analytical possibilities of video to investigate architecture and its multiple implications. The new edition of Summer School will be related to the exhibition BUONE NUOVE (“Good News”) an exhibition that will open in fall 2021 and that aspires to document how architecture has been affected by and benefitted from social changes and battles for inclusivity and equality through the presence of new professional figures that are infusing new forces in contemporary design. The presence of previously absent or much more marginal figures at the helm of the project teams has in fact led to redefine the objectives and tools of architecture in relation to renewed concepts of creativity and innovation. The exhibition will therefore pay particular attention to the work of offices directed or co-directed by women designers and to those professional bodies that prove to be more aware of the bio-political changes taking place, integrating them into their designing process.

While the exhibition focuses on the new gender alignments within the architecture practice, the Architecture Film Summer School will be a tool to explore the other side of the story: can gender identity be a way to experience and define space? Can space, both public and private, be “gendered”? Does gender influence or fails to influence the space we live in and the way we design it? How does the connection between gender and space influence the way we perceive it?
