CHANGE THE SUBTITLES WITH THE CC BUTTON
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.

Stephenson / Bishop were commissioned by The Architects Journal to create a short film of the new extension to the Tate Modern, The Switch House, by Herzog & de Meuron.
From the architects:
The Tate Modern Project
Competition 2005, project 2005 – 2012, realisation 2010 – 2016
Tate Modern has changed London since 2000. The impact it has had on urban design and the development of the South Bank and Southwark, has been as substantial as its influence on the city’s artistic, cultural and social life. The new development adds another decisive dimension to the architecture and environment of this quarter and beyond. With a new entrance to the South, and a direct North-South passage, taking people from the Thames through the existing building and the Turbine Hall out to a new city plaza to the South on Sumner Street and from there on to Southwark, the new development connects Southwark with the Thames and provides much improved open, public space.
Tate Modern is the world’s most visited museum of modern and contemporary art. In this next stage of development the vision was to establish a new model for museums of modern and contemporary art, by fully integrating the display, learning and social functions of the museum, strengthening links between the museum, its locality and the city.
