Design streaming platform Shelter has commissioned a new factual series Architecture on the Edge,.
Principal photography has begun in Chile on a 6 x 15 minute series which will reveal six unique buildings that showcase the modern architecture movement in Chile.
Focusing on some of the country’s most engaging and celebrated buildings, Architecture on the Edge explores how Chilean architecture revels in pushing design to the very edge, and includes Pritzker prize-winning architecture and architects from Chile.
“The portrayed buildings are not just inserted in the landscape but they need to deal with its conditions. Surrounded by impressive views, often isolated, they declare to the world their own way of understanding architecture,” says producer Mario Novas.
“The modern architecture movement in Chile is cutting edge and extremely inspiring. We are excited to have commissioned this international series, and look forward to bringing it to audiences globally on Shelter,” says Executive Producer and Shelter creator Dustin Clare.
It will premiere exclusively on Shelter in early 2021.
Filmmakers Katerina Kliwadenko & Mario Novas are best known for their 2017 feature documentary Do More with Less, about the South and Central American avant garde pro-bono architecture movement to address the housing crisis and improve the lives of millions of South American people. Do More with Less was selected for festivals all over the world, and is available to stream on Shelter.
Groundbreaking designs such as Desert Interpretation Center by Emilio Marín & Juan Carlos López; Río Plata Shelter by Elton Léniz Arquitectos & Francisco Cruz and Klotz House by Mathias Klotz are just some of the incredible buildings to be featured Architecture on the Edge.
Architecture on the Edge delves into the diverse & challenging environments of the West Coast of South America, and is the second Shelter Original commission, following in the footsteps of the critically acclaimed Inspired Architecture.
Inspired Architecture featured six isolated, uniquely Australian and inspirational structures, drawing the viewer into an active exploration of modern architecture and design. The 6-episode series, exclusive to Shelter, was cinematically crafted by award-winning filmmaker Jim Lounsbury (The Meaning of Vanlife, The Infinite Lens). Episode 1 Inspired Architecture: Permanent Camping was selected to screen at New York’s prestigious Architecture & Design Film Festival 2020, Istanbul International Architecture and Urban Films Festival 2020 and the Palm Springs Architecture Design Art Film Festival 2021.
