Great expectations : [Narrator: Simon Chilvers].
Kochuu : Commentary: Tadao Ando, Sverre Fehn, Toyo Ito, Kristian Gullichsen.
Great expectations : Looks at innovative, futuristic, utopian and sometimes bizarre architectural projects of the 20th century. Shows how contemporary problems like housing shortages, urban decay and pollution motivate architects to create changes in the way people live. Considers plans that have actually been constructed and animates some unrealized visions to see how they might have looked. Features works by Rudolf Steiner, Le Corbusier, Moshe Safdie, Oscar Niemeyer, Jacque Fresco, Peter Cook, Colin Fournier, Levitt & Sons, Antti Lovag, Peter Vetsch, and Paolo Soler.
Kochuu : Documentary about modern Japanese architecture, and its impact on the Nordic building tradition. "Kochuu" which translates as "in the jar," refers to the Japanese tradition of constructing small, enclosed physical spaces, which create the impression of a separate universe. Features interviews with some of Japan's leading architects as well as Scandinavian contemporaries.
