Synopsis

North American Premiere

An experimental short. A photographer who specializes in construction sites decides to pay a last visit to the site of the skyscraper on which he has been working. The narrator is the building’s architect, who tries to read the photographer’s thoughts. The dialogue is constructed from the remarks of 26 architects, designers, and engineers who worked on the building. An interesting reflection on space and on designing an optimal and ergonomic work environment.
