Berlin's brutalist architectural heritage is under fire in this documentary film. The city's powerful Charité Hospital wants to destroy a brutalist icon of the Cold War era -- the infamous former animal research laboratory called the Mäusebunker. A dedicated group of politicians, preservationists, architects, gallerists and students fight for an adaptive re-use of this magnificent, uncompromisingly unique structure.
What Does It Take to Make A Building?
2021 / 27 min / United Kingdom
Director: Jim Stephenson
An intimate portrait of architect Sarah Wigglesworth's life and her mission to use her work as a vehicle for social change. Through her conversations with fellow architect Piers Taylor, Sarah discusses her architectural education -- which was dominated by men and almost led her to quit the industry before graduation. The conversations continue to discuss the experimental home and studio she designed and built with her partner Jeremy Till.
