Urban Framing - Rivington Place is an experimental documentary about the Rivington Place in London, designed by Adjaye Associates. In this film the building itself is the main character and narrator. The story is not only documenting an unspoken conversation between the building's facade and the urban context, but also a visual dialogue with its users. The flux and flows of interwoven images, along with sound provide an unexpected cinematic experience that challenges us to look at architecture and the city in a different manner.
The film was part of Blank Slate Digital Shorts, sponsored by the UK Film Council and B3 Media. It screened at Urbanworld Film Festival, New York and East End Film Festival, London.
The film was directed by Wanda Yu-Ying Hu and cinematography by Peter Emery
