The architecture profession and the figure of the architect have been depicted in cinema since about 1904 (the oldest example of an architect as the main character in a film). As well in fiction as in reality the shifts in the image we have of the persona of the architect have changed throughout history.
A skilled human with a broad learning and various talents – the architect of Vitruvius – the architect of today is also a curator, product designer, writer, filmmaker, photographer, philosopher, graphic designer, artist, activist, social worker, developer, etc… Is this development setting the architect further away from the origin of the word architecture or is it bringing the profession to an unknown future?

The 5th edition of the Arquiteturas Film Festival will explore the notion of the contemporary architect’s role in society as well as the
metamorphosis in the profession. Let’s Get Physical calls for the builder in you!
