And the Oscar Goes to…Tadao Ando and Daniel Libeskind
February 27, 2012
For those of you still reeling from the Oscars last night (we laughed, we cried), here’s a wonderful video that places four contemporary buildings in Veneto, Italy in the same cinematic splendor as some of the brightest stars to have received that coveted golden statuette. Watch as Tadao Ando’s Factory, Silvia Dainese’s Black Cube, Massimiliano Fuksas‘s Nardini Bull, and Daniel Libeskind’s 9/11 Memorial come to life in this short film, which celebrates each building’s dramatic play with light. Set to scintillating instrumentals, ‘Luce/Light’ guides us through the spaces, allowing us to observe the details and soak in the emotive qualities of each masterful architectural performance.
