Events

  • The Destruction of Memory - Film

    This new documentary film looks at the urgent issue of cultural destruction, and features interviews with the Director-General of UNESCO, the Prosecutor of the ICC, as well as international experts including architects such as Daniel Libeskind. Its explorations of the powerful connection of the built environment to the people who live in it, and the destruction and rebuilding of buildings and monuments, has seen it resonate strongly with architects and Schools of Architecture. 

    The film has screened or will screen in 2017 at institutions such as the British Museum, Harvard Art Museums, the Ashmolean, Brown, Stanford, Brandeis, and in Europe, Canada, Asia and Australia. Reviews have called it 'a blisteringly uncompromising documentary' and 'powerful...humane, poignant...a tough but compelling film'.
