This is a teaser for the Kimera documentary project.
To communicate the architecture in a simple, direct and accessible way to an audience that is not on the field: this is the goal of Kimera.
In fact, the architecture is nothing other than the representation of the need of men to dwell, to live together with other people (to paraphrase F. Neumeyer).
What is the design philosophy of the upcoming city of the future?
Kimera wants to present new architectural projects through the voice of their designers: the soul of the building is narrated by the philosophy that the study/architect conceived in the design phase.
Well, this is a story about people who strongly believed in their visions.
And they have realized 'em even if it seemed impossible to achieve, even if it seemed a chimera.
