Subject of course


Film as a medium for documentation is becoming increasingly important. This course offers an introduction to the use of film-based architectural documentation. From the creation of a concept to post-production, the necessary tools are taught to create appealing documentations.

This semester the course is offered in combination with

259.613 UE Stegreifentwerfen "Mare vista Cervo - sensitive interventions to touristic infrastructure " Modellierung
259.625 EX Exkursion Digitale Architektur und Raumplanung

The aim is to capture the architecture, lifestyle and tourist infrastructure of the place in order to use them as a basis for in-depth considerations in the design process.

After introductory lectures in March, filming will take place during the excursion in Cervo and then the clips will be processed into image films.
