Event

Beyond Metabolism
ByDesign 2016

Apr 16

(Stefanie Gaus & Volker Sattel, Germany, 2014, 41min)

Seattle premiere!

Saturday, Apr 16 at 05:00PM
First triangles, then hexagons  the hexagon as the geometric DNA of an erratic structure with an eerie lack of scale. Slowly, in the succession of hallways, apertures, views, and spaces, an enormous construction is disclosed. Already in its first images, Beyond Metabolism conveys a fascination for a utopia of architecture that imagines life in future societies in flexible, large structures, expandable at will. We find ourselves in the interior of the International Conference Center in Kyoto, which was built in 1966 by the Japanese architect Sachio Otani  a student of the famous Kenzo Tange. Following an interpreters narrative, fragments of documentary archive material recall what may be the most significant event ever to occur at this place, the 1997 World Climate Change Conference.

In Beyond Metabolism Stefanie Gaus and Volker Sattel question our idealistic future in post high economic growth era, with the help from the International Conference Center in Kyoto.
