2015 Brisbane Open House (October)

“Architecture Film Night” is an exciting showcase of films that inform and inspire about architecture, urban design, and public spaces.  This event is presented in partnership with Brisbane Open House, URBNE Films and the Princess Theatre.

The film night includes a selection of local and international short films and feature documentaries.  The feature film Microtopia explores ideas on small, mobile or temporary architecture with today’s increasing population, technological gains, and more mobile society.

It’s a great chance to also celebrate the history of the beautiful Princess Theatre, and relive its days when it was once a movie-house and performance space in 1914 to 1942.

Director: Jesper Wachtmeister (2013)
In an age of increasing population and technological gains, today’s mobile society has resulted in a demand, or perhaps a dream, for portable dwellings and dwellings in new settings and situations. Microtopia explores how architects, artists and ordinary problem-solvers are pushing the limits to find answers to their dreams of portability, flexibility – and of creating independence from “the grid”.  Microtopia deals with a contemporary urgent ideas that are addressed, and solved, in a very surprising way.
