‘If buildings could talk, what would they say about us?’ – Cathedrals of Culture offers six startling responses to this question. This 3D film project about the soul of buildings allows six iconic and very different buildings to speak for themselves. Six acclaimed filmmakers bring their own visual style and artistic approach to the project: the Berlin Philharmonic, an icon of modernity; the National Library of Russia, a kingdom of thoughts; Halden Prison, the world’s most humane prison; the Salk Institute, a scientific monastery on the California coast; the Oslo Opera House, a futuristic symbiosis of art and life; and the Centre Pompidou, a modern culture machine.
Cathedrals of Culture explores how each of these landmarks reflects our culture and guards our collective memory. ‘
