This piece really falls into a larger conversation that I have been having with some peers about the representation of architecture through photography, video, rendering and animation. Some of my thoughts about the photography part of that conversation can be found here. I have a feeling that conversation will start to make it's way to this blog more and more in the next few months.
For now, we can have a look at this animated short about an Abby turned prison turned cultural center in France. Directed by Francis Cutter and Vincent Nguyen, Welcome to Fontevraud, shows a UNESCO heritage in a interesting way through the use of animated stills and dance. Yep dance. Though the graphics are not perfect the idea is interesting and it does give a feel for the building quickly and entertainingly.
