Did there is a connection between Architecture and Cinematography ?
This is the question the movie tring to enter.
Days of Zucco is a short film which aims to provide a comparative reading of architecture by cinema.
It is an "architectural fiction" and is governed by a number of codes:
- The scenario of the film follows the specificity of the building, its form and its program.
- There is no other decor than the inside or the outside of the building.
- The building and architectural discourse are in the second narrative level.
- The human stories are the wire scriptwriting directors
The film reuses graphics code architecture to enable them to switch in the collective imagination. They help provide a new reading spaces in which the character evolves.
Days of Zucco tells the day of a man of thirty year within a building: the Vertou cultural center in the suburbs of Nantes designed by architecture firm Fernandez and Serres.
This one was winner of the Equerre d’Argent (the equivalent of OSCAR for architecture).
At first responsible for providing legitimacy to make a film about this amazing architectural project, the script of Days of Zucco has evolved so that the film is sufficient in itself, is no longer the only image of the building but it becomes a new object, autonomous.

The ’Emulsifier’ is a hand painted anamorphic glass sculpture made out of 160 glass strips. When the piece is rotated four hidden images appear every 90° angle. The glass strips are stuck into a wooden base with laser cut slits. The images were painted with the same colors used for traditional stained glass windows. All fragments of the images were painted separately on the strips. The piece is about 35x35x35cm in size.
