Reconversão (Reconversion)--a Study of Eduardo Souto de Moura at REDCAT on Nov. 19

On November 19, REDCAT will show a documentary by Thom Andersen called Reconversão (Reconversion), which examines 17 works by 2011 Pritzker Prize winner Eduardo Souto de Moura. REDCAT describes the film by recalling the filmmaker’s influences as well as the architect’s ideas: “Echoing Dziga Vertov’s concepts and Eadweard Muybridge’s techniques (shooting only one or two frames per second), Andersen masterfully brings forward what makes Souto de Moura an original: the incorporation of the passing of time into architectural designs, positing them within a history fraught with class struggle and societal changes, in a continuum with ruins—from which they may originate, and to which they will return—and with nature—which they frame, and by which they are framed.”  Read story
