** Co-presented with AIA Seattle **

AIA Seattle presents Finding Balance Across the Spectrum of Residential Design: Virtual Housing Design Week, a full week of continuing education webinars, discussions, film screenings, art, and engagement focused on small scale residential design inspiration and practice issues.

On the occasion of Virtual Housing Design Week, Northwest Film Forum presents Spatial Features, a program of short films and a feature documentary that use an interdisciplinary lens to invoke conversation around ideas, innovations, and movements in residential design.

Films in this Program:
ECOS | Oda al Silencio
(Andres Arochi, Mexico, 2018, 4 min)

Mexican architect Luis Barragans Casa Estudioa modernist house in Mexico Cityhosts a body-bending dance troupe who twist and move through the geometric buildings colorful spaces and rooms. Through play and experiment, the dancers evoke the energy of the building; the vibrations and ambiances of each volume. This multidisciplinary piece blends architecture, cinema, performance and music to elicit the human experience within Barragans space.

Sue Sada Was Here
(Cindy Mochizuki, Vancouver, BC, 2018, 9 min)

Sue Sada Was Here is an experimental film that turns written texts Muriel Kitagawa (19121974) into scores of physical movement, which are then enacted in the historic Roedde House. Kitagawas editorial writing and unpublished manuscripts speak to the pre- and post-war periods in Vancouver, particularly the injustices of the Canadian governments policies towards Japanese and Japanese Canadians. The performers embody Sue Sada, one of Kitagawas pen names and use books as objects of print history that can omit histories of violence and colonialism. This film was originally commissioned for Memories of the Future III.

Método Livingston
(Sofía Mora, Argentina, 2019, 72 min)

Vines grow in through the windows of Argentinian architect Rodolfo Livingstons Buenos Aires home, but he doesnt mind. According to him, the spiders are welcome in. The charming designer, still practicing into his late 80s, has spent his career connecting with the people who will experience his creation. His is an exploration of the human interaction with architecture. In Método Livingston, he walks us through his house, his connection to Fidel Castro, and his hopes for his young son  all within the context of architecture as a tool for change.
