A film by Matthew Donaldson matthewdonaldson.com
Barbicania is a feature-length film capturing a month-long immersion in the life of the Barbican Centre and Estate in London, one of the most representative achievements of brutalist architecture.
The film, built as a personal diary, recounts on a daily basis what the directors duo has discovered during their urban trip from the top floors of the towers to the underground levels of the art centre.
Barbicania invites you to discover the personalities, lifestyle and architectural landscapes that make the Barbican so special. Drawing an intimate human map of the place, the film questions the durability of this utopia of the 50s.
“An original and clever cinematographic language which deeply innovates the architecture representation.” Icon Design
“Beka & Lemoine animate the fortress and turn the darkest building of London into a series of colourful short stories.” L’Espresso
“An intimate and lively filmic map of Barbican’s Brutalist masterpiece.” Domus
More information on the project:
On the run up to the Stirling Prize, 2016, The Architect’s Journal takes a look into the six nominated buildings, with interviews from the architects.
Made up of 235 tenure-blind, high-quality homes of which 25% are affordable dwelling. The project transforms the built environment whilst respecting the history of neighbouring buildings. Trafalgar Place is a flagship housing project for Lendlease and is a part of their wider redevelopment of the Elephant and Castle.
The transformation of the former Heygate Estate enriches the qualities of the area, creating a thriving, desirable place to live, work and visit. Separate buildings are integrated within an open green landscape characterised by mature trees and diverse new planting. A new public realm within the historic fabric of the neighbourhood is created.
Wallpaper* magazine are celebrating the very best of the design world with the launch of their annual Design Awards. We produced the music for a film that peeks into the world of the Bouroullec Brothers and the concept behind their ‘Serif’ TV. They not only won Designer of the Year, but Best Domestic Design too.
The project began with the passion of craftsmen of Takaoka Traditional Industry Youth Association to bring excitement to their hometown, Takaoka. The short film illustrates dignity and anxiety of craftsmanship in local areas in Japan. It aims to spread the reality of Japanese craftsmen to the rest of the world and to let people know about Takaoka, the city of Japanese traditional arts and crafts. The story is about a couple, a sissy husband Takashi and a devoted wife, Suzu.

“Go straight off the wall” said his dad and Dominic does just that. The film follows Dominic Wilcox, an artist / inventor / designer, on his quest for new ideas….Transforming the mundane and ordinary into something surprising, wondrous and strangely thought provoking.
My debut film in aerial cinematography. The title translates into something like “air-angle” or “air-peaks” referring to the Dolomites grand rock towers reaching into the sky.
I shot this with a DJI Phantom 4 whilst also shooting timelapses as keystone of my business.
