Why Does Beauty Matter?
A documentary on the Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2019

Why Does Beauty Matter? D: Mies. TV, 27min., EE 2019. eOV


The Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB 2019) curated by Yael Reisner has raised the issue of Beauty in architecture. A term, often ignored by todays architects, is the focus of the exhibition and symposium. Reisner has invited not only architects, but also experts from philosophy, mathematics and neurosciences to discuss their research on beauty.

The video features in-depth interviews with curator Yael Reisner, along participating architects Sou Fujimoto, KTA, March Studio, Space Popular, Fologram, as well as Nick Luscombe (DJ), Graham Harman (philosopher), Ron Aharoni (mathematician) and Taylor Enoch (neuroscientist)
