“If buildings could talk, what would they say about us?” Six acclaimed filmmakers turn their talents to capturing the souls of six iconic structures, from the Centre Pomipidou in Paris and the Berlin Philharmonic to La Jolla’s Salk Institute and St. Petersburg’s National Library. Shot in 3D, the films let the buildings speak for themselves, revealing the ways they reflect our culture and safeguard our collective memory.
