ArchFilmFest London | Mario Botta. The Space Beyond

ArchFilmFest London | Mario Botta. The Space Beyond

Join us for the UK premiere of the Swiss documentary followed by a conversation with the internationally acclaimed architect Mario Botta.

Co-directed by Loretta Dalpozzo and Michèle Volontè, Mario Botta. The Space Beyond is a rare and artistic journey into the work of internationally acclaimed Swiss architect Mario Botta.

The film explores Botta’s ever-growing curiosity and his reflections on the contradictions of society through sacred spaces. At 75, Botta is one of the few architects who has designed places of prayer for the three main monotheistic religions. After designing many churches, chapels and a synagogue, he is now designing a mosque in China.

Through his thoughts and interactions with artists, clients and family members, who take the audience from Switzerland to Italy, Israel to China and South Korea, this film provides a glimpse of the person behind the architect.

The evening will begin with a screening of Mario Botta. The Space Beyond in the Jarvis Hall. After the screening Mario Botta will engage in a conversation with British architect Nigel Coates, followed by a Q&A with the audience.

This event is produced in partnership with the Architecture Film Festival, and generously supported by the Swiss Embassy in London and the London Festival of Architecture 2019.
