Did there is a connection between Architecture and Cinematography ?
This is the question the movie tring to enter.
Days of Zucco is a short film which aims to provide a comparative reading of architecture by cinema.
It is an “architectural fiction” and is governed by a number of codes:
– The scenario of the film follows the specificity of the building, its form and its program.
– There is no other decor than the inside or the outside of the building.
– The building and architectural discourse are in the second narrative level.
– The human stories are the wire scriptwriting directors
The film reuses graphics code architecture to enable them to switch in the collective imagination. They help provide a new reading spaces in which the character evolves.
Days of Zucco tells the day of a man of thirty year within a building: the Vertou cultural center in the suburbs of Nantes designed by architecture firm Fernandez and Serres.
This one was winner of the Equerre d’Argent (the equivalent of OSCAR for architecture).
At first responsible for providing legitimacy to make a film about this amazing architectural project, the script of Days of Zucco has evolved so that the film is sufficient in itself, is no longer the only image of the building but it becomes a new object, autonomous.

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.
This private gallery in Vauxhall has involved the conversion of an extraordinary terrace of listed industrial buildings, that were formerly theatre carpentry and scenery painting workshops. The gallery forms the whole length of the street, with the three listed Victorian buildings flanked at either end by new buildings. The ground and upper floors within the five buildings are continuous, allowing them to be used flexibly in many combinations, to accommodate both large and small exhibitions. There are 3 large galleries on each of the two floors, stretching in a line from one end of the building to the other. The two gallery levels are connected by new spiral staircases and a large lift.
Along Newport Street and facing to the railway, the unusual proportions of the Victorian workshops, with their groups of low level windows and high blank walls above, have been continued in the design of the new buildings. The new facades are made with a hard pale red brick that closely matches the surface of the listed buildings. The five buildings next to each other, all different but obviously related, make a sheer and impressive street elevation.
The scheme includes a restaurant and administrative offices for the gallery. The building shows exhibitions of the client’s extensive collection of contemporary art, and is open to the public for free.
