Layar Tancap Arsitektur

“Architecture exists, like cinema, in the dimension of time and movement. One conceives and reads a building in terms of sequences. To erect a building is to predict and seek effects of contrast and linkage through which one passes… In the continuous shot/sequence that a building is, the architect works with cuts and edits, framings and openings… I like to work with a depth of field, reading space in terms of its thickness, hence their superimposition of different screens, planes legible from obligatory joints of passage which are to be found in all my buildings…”

– Jean Nouvel

Piece By Piece: Renzo Piano (2012)

Directed by Christopher Tuckfield

Banyak orang berpendapat bahwa Renzo Piano tidak pernah mengembangkan gayanya sendiri. Namun, gaya Piano adalah mempelajari tapak, kemudian memahami keunikannya,  dan menemukan solusi untuk bangunannya. Bangunannya dirancang dengan teliti, sesuai dengan lingkungannya, serta mengakomodasi kebutuhan penggunanya. ‘Piece By Piece: Renzo Piano’, memberikan ruang dan kesempatan bagi Renzo Piano untuk membahas perbedaan dan keunikan karyanya satu per satu

It is often said of the world famous architect Renzo Piano That he has never develop a recognizable style. But Piano’s style is to grapple primarily with the sites and to tease from them uniquely aesthetic and technical solutions. His buildings are meticulous, individual visions that serve the needs of the surrounding environments and the people that inhabit them. This film gives piano a platform to talk about his architecture and to present works that are as disparate as they are individual.
