SynopsisThe film Sense of Architecture shows 42 contemporary architectural projects of Austrian origins. As an
independent work, it emerged from the material for 57 short films that Heinz Emigholz produced for
the traveling exhibition conceived in Graz, “Sense of Architecture”.
Unlike the exhibition, which grouped the architecture thematically, the new film assembles the project
into a social reality in which modern buildings were constructed for all areas of life. The film begins with a bell tower in the Seetaler Alps and a construction site and then leads through the various stages of a fictive life: from a Kindergarten, a single-family home, a botanical garden, a track house, a pharmacy, a housing development, a museum for children, an apartment house with a workshop, a dialect institute, an art house, an office building, a school, a shoe shop, an apartment block, a town hall, a community center, a medical center, past a pedestrian bridge, in a room for studying, an airport tower, a church reconstruction, a community center, a regional exhibition, a residential area, a city council, a renovated castle, a villa, a restaurant, a hall, a building extension, a justice center, a prison, a cloister, an art house, a hospital, a vacation house, a castle, a museum, a stone house, a nursing home, a crematorium, and to a columbarium.
