Last week we shared with the documentary filmmakers our perspectives on the “Bilbao effect”, evidence of social, economic and media effects of star architecture as well as the interplays between social media and architecture. It is important to disseminate insights into scientific research beyond academic journals. Not only can we reach a wider public, but it forces us as academics to communicate complex thoughts comprehensibly in a few sentences.
The documentary is an international co-production between German Television (ARD / BR) and the French-German public network Arte. It will be aired in France (2024), Germany (2025), Austria and Switzerland (2025) and will be broadcast globally by Deutsche Welle and distributed globally by Transtel.
