Singapore is not used to letting people do whatever they want and thus it has been stuck with a moribund art scene. But the opening of the new National Gallery aims to change perceptions of the city-state both at home and abroad; Monocle films take a look at a fast-emerging art scene.

The video shows the relationship between the architecture and the environment, the nature that surrounds it, the context in which it is located and how it reacts to different weather conditions.
It was filmed in India in July 2012 with a Canon 5D Mark II, and was part of the exhibition of the BSI Swiss Architectural Award 2012, which opened in September at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio (Switzerland).

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

The Sami People call it the ‘blue time’ – the period in winter when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon in northern areas of Scandinavia. Jeff Allen visits northern Norway every year, in both winter and summer, to break out of the world of credit cards and double glazing that society has become and explore the breath-taking wilderness and coastline by sea kayak with longtime friend Bjørn Eines. In more recent years, he has taken up dog sledding under the experienced wing of Tore Albrigtsen and now guides expeditions to the region to let others witness the beauty of his favourite place on earth.
Directed, filmed and edited by Greg Dennis

The Continual March to Solitude is an experimental short film created out of recent footage shot while trekking Kilimanjaro and an archival recording of “The Snow of Kilimanjaro.” The audio was repurposed and re-edited (like you would do with an interview) to create a new story about the continual quest for exploration and adventure.
This film was shot during the low season (Early April), when Kilimanjaro sees its least amount of visitors. Footage was collected over the 6 day trek, and shot at altitudes ranging from 6,000ft to 19,341 ft.
The low season surprised us with a crowd-less and snowcapped peak. For more information about trekking Kilimanjaro in the off season, check out: andrewdavidwatson.com/blog/post_id

Six celebrated architects, including Bjarke Ingels, Liz Diller and Daniel Libeskind, here talk about what it’s like to build architecture that both matters and works in the iconic city of New York – from Ground Zero to The High Line.
“A building should not look like Lady Gaga,” says American architect Robert A.M. Stern (b. 1939), who feels that the city is made up of background and foreground buildings, and that it is important to learn how to let the buildings work together instead of isolating them.
Danish architect Bjarke Ingels (b. 1974) stresses how important it is to care about and understand the people one is designing for: “Architects need to re-insert architecture as something that people are interested in – not just architects – something that is important for society.”
“In a sense it was a non-site without ground to stand on.” American architect and founding partner of Snøhetta, Craig Dykers (b. 1961), talks about the challenging experience of building the 9/11 Memorial Museum Pavilion at Ground Zero.
According to American architect Thom Mayne (b. 1944), architecture is essentially “a way of thinking, exploring, inventing, making and participating in the world.”
American architect Liz Diller (b. 1954) discusses her fascinating project The High Line, which is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated plus 30 feet above the streets of Manhattan’s West Side.
“People stopped me: ‘Thank you Mr. Libeskind. You delivered what you promised’. They didn’t say anything else. They shook my hand. I thought that was the best compliment I could get.” Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind (b. 1946) shares his personal story of getting to work on such a poignant project as Ground Zero.

The Atlantic’s video series “Saturday Night in America” is about uncovering pockets of nightlife across the nation. This episode takes place in Austin, Texas, and profiles a pedicab driver, the owner of a honky-tonk bar, and members of a band called The Octopus Project. Despite a continuous influx of new people into the city, small bands who play live music have always shaped the culture. “Austin without music would just be a really boring college town,” says resident Sarah Yopp. “Local music here is, I think, the star of the city. Without music, Austin would die off.” The film was directed by Ben Wu and David Usui of Lost & Found Films.
This short film by Adam Loften and Mary Fowles tells the story of Mohammed Alsaleh, a young Syrian refugee granted asylum in Canada in 2014. After fleeing torture and imprisonment by the Assad regime, he is rebuilding his life. Mohammed counsels newly-arrived Syrian refugee families with the same Vancouver-based NGO that aided him during his own resettlement process.
Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec tell the story of their Lustre Gabriel, a Swarovski crystal chandelier created for the Palace of Versailles. The design is featured in the newly released Disegno No.6
I think over again my small adventures, my fears
Those small ones that seemed so big.
For all the vital things I had to get and to reach.
And yet there is only one great thing,
The only thing,
To live to see the great day that dawns
And the light that fills the world.
