• The Barbican In London for the opening of the Power and Architecture season at Calvert 22, we grant ourselves the time to pay tribute to one of the most iconic brutalist realisations of last century. The Barbican is the noblest example of the periphery at the center typology. In the very heart of the City of London, a residential unit hosting more […] jo pixel No responses 2016-07-01
  • Berlin Mehringplatz Few places in Berlin are more emblematic than Mehringplatz of the concept of “periphery at the center”. Situated in a very central location of the city, only few hundred meters from the foundational nucleus of the city in the Fischerinsel, it is at the crossroads of two main axes of the city, the north- south […] jo pixel No responses 2016-03-05
  • Berlin, dream of modernity No city as Berlin,  (except Paris, obviously) can be adopted as an epitome of modernity. From here Georg Simmel generated its observations on the mental life of the metropolis, defining the inherently modern figure of the overstimulated man, and the notion of blasè. From here Walter Benjamin began its drift into the modern, plastered of […] jo pixel No responses 2015-12-19

  • The bunker This sequence was shot in an abandoned  military bunker  in Cuba. It was presented to us as destined to one  of the infamous nuclear missiles of the 1962 crisis, although we have no elements to confirm this hypothesis. It was nevertheless a sinister and fascinating place, huge enough to contain a big launching pad. The […] jo pixel No responses 2014-12-11
  • Nothing is left Nothing is left. We imbued this long take traveling towards Alexanderplatz with the dark mood of Circuit Parallele’s track. It is a study for the in progress film project, an urban symphony following three characters meandering through the psychologic landscape of a relentlessly transforming Berlin… music__nothing is left_circuit parallele_spine 02 jo pixel No responses 2014-12-08

  • Edificio GIRÓN This 17 floors brutalist complex was the first coup de foudre in La Habana.  Built in 1967 in the Vedado neighbourhood, the building faces the sea on the Malecon boulevard. It was designed in 1967 by Antonio Quintana and Alberto Rodríguez. It was revolutionary from a construction point of view since it was the first building to use […] jo pixel No responses 2014-11-27
