Architecture & Design Film Festival Kicks Off in NYC Tomorrow

The 2015 Architecture and Design Film Festival—the seventh-annual edition of the traveling event—kicks off tomorrow and the lineup is very promising. Among the 22 films (plus panel discussions) at the New York City event are flicks about David Adjaye, Danish firm Henning Larsen, and that firm's fellow Dane, Bjarke Ingels, in a highly anticipated film about his 8 House residential complex in Copenhagen called "The Infinite Happiness," by Ila Bêka and Louise Lermoine.

Movies seem a natural complement to architecture—the two rely on aesthetics to establish narratives, set spatial and temporal tones, and have (sometimes surprising) emotional impact—so it only makes sense that the two merge here in a 4-day-long cinematic celebration. The fest opens tomorrow evening at New York's SVA Theater and continuing on at Bow Tie Chelsea Cinemas until Sunday, October 18.
