– Intro to the upcoming (Sept.14-Nov.23) 11th Annual Architecture Exhibition / Venice Biennale, directed this year by Aaron Betsky. Its title is “Out There: Architecture Beyond Building.” (Preview from Sept.11-13/08)

I highlighted a quote by Betsky that describes architecture at some metalevel of praxis — not as the business of building as such, but as a way of thinking about the human-made environment.

Cool Hunting: Mock-Ups in Close-Up

I’d love to be in NYC at the end of March to see this film:

“Architect Gabu Heindl and film theorist Drehli Robnik recently compiled such footage [building models used in film] (a curated selection of 80 clips) into an 80-minute video called ‘Mock-Ups in Close-Up’.

“Providing a curious look at how directors use models, the film clips used range from art-house to blockbuster, from Peter Greenaway’s ‘Belly of an Architect’ to Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’… …The Storefront for Art and Architecture will be showing the video starting 25 March, 2008.”
