Great Expectations: A journey through the history of visionary architecture

DADo Film Society presents Great Expectations: A Journey through the history of visionary architecture, screening at the Robin Boyd Walsh Street Courtyard on 20 August 2014.

Introduced by architect Andrew Maynard Great Expectations presents some of the greatest architectural dreamers of our time – architects whose imaginations have been allowed to run free to conjure up resolutions to housing shortages, sustainable building practices or otherwise bring changes to our ways of living. From conception, inception and creation this documentary charts some of the works of such luminaries as Le Corbusier, Niemeyer and Steiner and tells intriguing tales about their magnificent architectural ideas.
(Great Expectations: A Journey through the history of visionary architecture, 2007, Director Jesper Wachtmeister, 52 mins, English)
