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 “Technotopia. Engineering the present and the future” that will open to the public in autumn 2021 at MAXXI.  Selected participants will be asked to analyse the virtuous ways engineering and technology have contributed to developing the most extraordinary formal solutions of the past and the incredible role they still play today in pushing the boundaries of architecture beyond its known potentials. During the workshop, held by video artists and professional filmmakers, they will develop and produce a video project starting from the elements of the exhibition—from the iconic engineering masterpieces of the past that have changed the course of architectural history to the most recent technological innovations that are changing the rules of design and construction—exploring the implications of the special, and sometimes controversial, bond between architecture, engineering, and technology.
