What Does It Take To Make A Building? (Short Film)


What Does It Take is an intimate portrait of Sarah Wigglesworth's life as an architect who uses her work as a vehicle for social change. Through her conversations with fellow architect Piers Taylor, Sarah discusses her architectural education (which was dominated by men and almost led to her quitting the industry before she graduated), through to the experimental home and studio she designed and built with her partner Jeremy Till.

Battleship Berlin (Feature Film)

Berlin's brutalist heritage is under fire. The city's powerful Charité hospital wants to destroy two brutalist icons of the Cold War era, including an infamous former animal research laboratory called the Mäusebunker. Meanwhile, a dedicated group of politicians, preservationists, architects, gallerists and students fight for an adaptive re-use of these magnificent, uncompromisingly unique structures. Who will win? No matter the outcome, you're left with the impression that preservation can be brutal.
