These are just-released film stills from a combined film and art installation celebrating the work of the architect Lina Bo Bardi - one of those architects we truly admire at uncube – which opens this Thursday, May 16, at the Architekturzentrum Wien (AzW).  Central to the installation are the films of Tapio Snellman, film-maker, artist and architect, who has created double projectionslooking at how people actually use the buildings rather than conventional architectural documentaries explaining their layout and spaces. With the focus on the SESC Pompéia, Bo Bardi’s cultural centre in São Paulo, he explores how its spaces have the flexibility to completely change in atmosphere and quality depending on the time of day, usage or occupation. Other films include images of the materials used, the textures of the surfaces, and the atmosphere of the surrounding city of São Paulo itself.

Adding to these films, artist Madelon Vriesendorp, together with curator Noemi Blager and exhibition designers Assemblage (London), has created atmospheric displays intended to give the visitor to the exhibition, when watching the film installations, some experience of the context, reflecting Bo Bardi’s vision of a socially-responsible architecture. All of the artists and designers involved in the making of this exhibition will be present at the opening on Thursday, 16 May, from 7pm.

Lina Bo Bardi. Together.
Opening: 16 May, 7pm
Duration: 17 May – 12 June, 2013
Architekturzentrum Wien, Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna, Austria
www.azw.at

Symposium: 29 May, 4-9pm
Institute for Art and Architecture, lecture room R211a, 2nd floor, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna
www.azw.at

The films and exhibition were premiered in winter 2012 at the British Council Gallery in London, and are now touring through Europe with the AzW as the first stop. So watch out for further stops.
