Chernobyl, Smart Homes and a Country on The Move: Architecture on Film, Summer 2015

From May to July this summer, The Architecture Foundation’s celebrated Architecture on Film season mounts monthly screenings, in its ongoing investigation into the light cinema can cast upon living in and with the constructed world.

Taking the audience on a voyage into the post apocalyptic landscape of Chernobyl’s Zone of Alienation (Pripyat, Dir. Nikolaus Geyrhalter, 12 May), offering them a ride as a passenger on the world’s largest train network (The Iron Ministry, Dir. J.P. Sniadecki, 14 July), and room and board in the Smart Home of the future (Fortress of Solitude, Dir. Simone Niquille/Space Caviar + The Machine Stops, Dir. Philip Saville, 23 June), through these films the season will offer glimpses into little seen worlds, and the people who do, and might, live within them.

With May's screening of Pripyat already sold out, early booking is recommend for the June and July events.
