Movie Reviews

Alexander K. Naylor | 02/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An excellent assortment of buildings is highlighted on this disk, and though the architecture is beautiful what truly makes these disks worthwhile is how the filmakers place the architecture in its society and elaborate on the building's role in it. Architecture's social, political, and aesthetic aspects are all touched upon in these vignettes, providing one with a unique view of the structures. These videos are better than some books, even, not only in their depth but also because through film one gets a unique view of the building and how it "lives" in its environment. Very informative, always beautifully shot, the "Architectures" series is a thought-provoking addition to any architectural library."

"I was able to view all four of the Architectures videos through Netflix. In my opinion Architectures 3 is the best of the series mainly due to the fact that it features 2 very different "Opera Houses", the Paris Opera House and the Sullivan Auditorium in Chicago. All of the Archtiectures videos provide interesting studies using models which clearly show the basic shapes and concepts of the many important buildings feataured in the series."
