Architectures presents a privileged and unprecedented look at the work of superstar architects and some of their most brilliant creations. Produced by the European public television channel ARTE, this series of 18 films across 3 DVDs looks at architecture and its historical and social functions to reveal its meaning and impact on humanity.

Each 26-minute film in the series focuses on a single building chosen because of the pioneering role it has played in the evolution of contemporary architecture. Meticulously filmed, each building is explored in great detail and this in-depth examination highlights all the concerns that confronted the architect from the genesis of the project through to its completion.

Close engagement of this kind, along with detailed scale-models of every building made specially for the films, permits each documentary to critically evaluate the principles behind its construction, the economics of the project, constraints of the commission and site, technical choices and materials used.

Architectures offers a unique and instructive insight into the greatest architectural achievements of our times.
