New architecture DVDs

We’ve recently purchased a major set of DVDs containing six-30 minute films each of which focuses on a seminal piece of architecture. Featured projects include Pierre Chareau’s Maison de Verre, Gehry’s Guggenheim Bilbao, Toyo Ito’s Sendai Mediatheque; Calatrava’s Lyon-Satolas TGV station, and Zumthor’s thermal baths at Vals. The DVDs are numbers 1433 to 1437 in the Library’s collection, and all are available for loan.
