Utopias and fictions in architecture

quotesY“Architecture can say a lot about the reality – but also about the utopias – of a society. What stood out for me about these cultural centres was that these buildings are in part quite representative and how their architecture – which is of a high quality – indicates the significance of these places. My films, however are not documentaries, I indeed provide little information and present almost fictive situations.” -Andreas Fogarasi, Interview on Exindex, March 2007.
