Architecture films

Architecture, especially the people around the buildings and behind the ideas, is a favorite topic. Many films have been produced in cooperation with ArchiNed, the well-known Dutch Architecture news website. The combination of Architecture and China resulted in the series In China, about Dutch architects building in China.
