Sacred geometry

What makes a building feel holy? That is the question Christoph Schaub explores in this documentary, enlisting architects Peter Zumthor, Peter Märkli and Álvaro Siza Vieira, artists James Turrell and Christina Iglesias and musician Jojo Mayer to help him get to the bottom of this elusive quality. ARCHITECTURE OF INFINITY is not just a film about the non-denominational spirituality of architecture, with its somnambulist camera gliding through beautiful and meditative spaces, the documentary is almost a spiritual experience in and of itself.

ARCHITECTURE OF INFINITY will be screened in Johanneskirken, with a panel debate before the film (in Norwegian).
