TOP DOWN MEMORY (Directed by Daniel Theiler) wins Best Architecture Film Award at Internationale Kurzfilmwoche Regensburg. Thank you so much!

Jury-Statement:
Our point of departure for experiencing this film, goes back historically, to the biennale architettura 2014 - la biennale di venezia2014, curated by Rem Koolhaas, entitled, “elements of architecture . . .” the underlying story structure to “Top Down Memory” reaffirms that design has always had a political element and that politicians have used / misused architecture to meet their own propaganda agenda in this century as well as the last with various levels of success and/or failure. The ongoing discussion of what could constitutes a big lie in the political arena of architecture (whether it’s the Hitler / Mussolini version of the twentieth century or the Donald Trump version of the twenty-first century is immaterial), while it is interesting it is not why this film is exceptional. Rather, through the Koolhaas filter of Venice à la 2014*, the balcony itself, as a fundamental element of architecture, is the main protagonist of this wonderful short film by Daniel Theiler. The duality of the visual character of the film allows for the specific story telling example to leave an open ended interpretation towards a more universal phenomenon. Well done and congratulations on your efforts.
