While nearly as old as the profession itself, architectural competitions became a social, political and cultural phenomenon of the post-Guggenheim Bilbao museums and real estate bubbles of the recent past. Taking place at the dramatic moment in which the bubble became a crisis, this is the first one to be documented, in excruciatingly raw detail. But does the jury have the last word? Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry, Dominique Perrault, Zaha Hadid and Norman Foster are selected to participate in the design of the future National Museum of Art of Andorra, a first in the Pyrenees small country. Norman Foster drops out of the competition after a change in the rules that allow the documentary to happen. Three months of design work go into the making of the different proposals, while, behind doors, a power struggle between the different architects and the client has a profound impact on the level of transparency granted by each office to the resident documentary crew, and which has a definite influence in the material shown in the film. The presentations to the jury happen in one intense day close to election time in Andorra, becoming a hot event in the tiny country, with media all around the international stars that may help shape its future. Of the four remaining architects three show up to make personal presentations, every one of which becomes a fascinating study in personality, strategy, character, showmanship… and a dramatic moment in which any detail becomes both important and irrelevant, the line between failure and success perfectly imperceptible Director’s biography Angel Borrego Cubero (Spain, 1967). While trained in architecture, with a PhD from ETSA Madrid and a MArch from Princeton University, where he was a Fulbright scholar, Borrego Cubero has been developing an interdisciplinary body of works that deal with issues such as the contemporary urban condition, the negotiations between private and public space, violence, surveillance, fictions in architecture, etc. After succeeding in a big international competition, in a process which was akin to a thriller, Angel Borrego Cubero decides to make a documentary of this recurring architectural procedure. During four years, intense work was dedicated to find, document and edit one into film format. “The Competition” is the first feature documentary of this Spanish director and is also the first film documenting the tense developments that characterize architectural contests.

          from H. Paul Moon Added 1,294 3 4

          This is a short time-lapse film experiment, using footage I shot in Barcelona, Spain on November 12, 2010. (I had meant to stage better shot diversity, but alas my battery drained after a long day touring Figueres and Girona - and this tower goes dark by 22h.) All the gaussian blurs and post-production fixes in the world could not hide the aliasing/moiré patterns you will see here, which is the Achille's heel of large-sensor digital videography. The music is composed and performed by R. Luke DuBois. The color grading uses Red Giant Software's Magic Bullet Looks ("Seattle" preset). Torre Agbar was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel for the Agbar Group, and it stands at the farthest inland edge of the Poblenou neighborhood in Barcelona. The design was inspired by similarly-shaped peaks that loom above the Montserrat monastery outside Barcelona.

                      Pendant plusieurs mois, une grue de plus de 100 mètres de haut a surplombé le chantier du nouvel Hôtel de Police. La Tour Nouvel est à présent déshabillée de ses échafaudages. La grue aujourd'hui démontée a permis un point de vue exclusif sur la ville. Une opportunité de hauteur unique... Nous vous offrons ces images, un travail brut de décoffrage qui a pu être réalisé grâce à la gentillesse et la collaboration de ces véritables funambules que sont les monteurs et grutiers http://charleroi-hd.tv https://www.facebook.com/charleroihdtv?ref=hl Il y a plus d'une manière de découvrir Charleroi
