German architect Hans Scharoun's imaginary architecture can be seen in the thousands of conceptual illustrations he made during WWII, a period when there was little work for him. He envisioned fantastical structures, enormous in size and unfeasible to construct.
These structures resembled something you'd see in animated science fiction. Later in life he used these conceptual designs as a source of inspiration for his real-world projects.
Throughout his life, Scharoun designed many distinctive buildings -- private residences, apartment complexes, a school, a library, and ultimately the Berlin Philharmonic Concert Hall. Each of his designs was unique and inventive. My impression is that Scharoun was primarily concerned with how a building would be used by its inhabitants.
He developed floorplans with specific and sometimes unconventional intentions. He preferred large open spaces where people would necessarily mingle, such as the Berlin Philharmonic foyer or the single long walkway in his apartment complex. He contrasted the open public space with areas for individuals and small groups to withdraw, for example Scharoun's classrooms were hexagonal and arranged like a honeycomb.
Scharoun also devised a complex logistical system for his library, where books move from the stacks to the patrons by traversing a complicated network of conveyor belts. I like to learn about these ideas for organization of people and things; it seems like architects always want to try something novel in that regard.
For the most part Scharoun's ideas seemed to be successful in practice, but I was curious if any of his ideas did not work so well for the public. The documentary was only an hour long, and it did not really say.
I also wonder how many of Scharoun's unconventional ideas were imitated by others. I see these kinds of documentaries about architects with radical design ideas, yet few of their radical ideas seem to go mainstream.Some of the films screened at the festival included Special, directed by Hal Haberman and Jeremy Passmorewhere, the J-horror film Retribution from cult director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, the North American premiere of the Thai action-horror film Vengeance, and Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, which won the festival's first Audience Award.
