Architectures is a documentary series exploring the architecture of notable buildings and the architects who designed them.

Each 26-minute film in the series focuses on a single building chosen because of the pioneering role it has played in the evolution of contemporary architecture. Meticulously filmed, each building is explored in great detail and this in-depth examination highlights all the concerns that confronted the architect from the genesis of the project through to its completion.

I’ve embedded the first and eleventh episode in the series below:

Walter Gropius’ main achievement — the buildings of the Bauhaus — is the most innovative art school of the 20th century.

The temple in the “Beaux Arts” style, the architectural culture of the 19th century, copied throughout the world.

The rest of the series is here.
