The YAF is hosting an architectural movie night at the Herron School of Art and Design. We will be watching two films about architecture, design, and the urban environment. Anyone and everyone is invited, we hope it will change the way you see and understand public spaces. Stay around afterwards for discussions.

Film One: William Whyte: The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces

“This highly influential film in architecture and planning circles by William H. Whyte analyzes the success and failures of urban spaces. Observing the natural order of spaces and the way people move through them, Whyte provides an intuitive critique of urban spaces and ways these spaces can be improved.”

Film Two: Vertical Expectations – The Shard

The Shard, is a skyscraper under construction in London Bridge, London. When completed in 2012, it will be the tallest building in the European Union and the 45th tallest building in the world. Vertical Expectations is a 26 minutes documentary that explores the nexus between architecture, development and society through an ethnographic analysis of the current building of the Shard.

This documentary highlights some of the questions that can inform a more nuanced understanding of architecture’s social ramifications and the relevance space art and technology have on local people and the city as a whole. It raises questions about how architecture and space reflect social needs, the role of urban planning in the construction of public areas and the impact it will have on the community.”
