Viviane Vives and MJ Neal, FAIA are the professors of this graduate advanced design studio on Film and Architecture at the University of Texas, Arlington. This video explores how their use of film as a research tool in architecture informed the students' projects and changed them.

The students achieved a completely different relationship to the site by the use of documentary filmmaking.

Film was also used as a creative expression medium and a presentation element but the emphasis was on it's use as a knowledge base tool.

All students shared a pool of footage and learned from each other, sharing their findings and drawing their own conclusions.
