Event description

Description

The Social are proud to present an autumn series of films on Fictional Architecture, celebrating cinematic constructions which fly in the face of the normal rules of architecture.

Architect, critic and researcher, Esther Jiménez Herráiz has curated the seires which begins with Wes Anderson's 2014, Grand Budapest Hotel in which the majestic and perfectly symmestrical hotel takes a lead role, rising above its Alpine enviroment with its strong vintage character.

She is also the co-founder of a multidisciplinary firm specialising in branding, strategic design and architecture and has worked internationally at Herzog & de Meuron, AHMM, SOM, KPF and Ricardo Bofill. Esther is now undertaking a PhD in Architectural Design at the Bartlett foucusing on how science fiction films can affect our understanding and development of prospective architecture as designers.


Founded in 2008, The Social from the RIBA is a platform to encourage architects from different practices, small and large to interact through workshops, screenings and activities, that feed the imagination.
