Architecture of Infinity: A Film by Christoph Schaub (Mixed media product)

Architecture of Infinity: A Film by Christoph Schaub By Christoph Schaub Cover Image


Temporality and age are inherent in every object and creature and, depending on one’s outlook, may transcend to infinity. But how can we imagine that infinity? What goes beyond it? In his latest movie about architecture, Swiss filmmaker Christoph Schaub sets out on a personal journey through time and space. He starts in his childhood, when his fascination with sacred buildings began, as did his wondering about beginnings and ends. In dialogue with architects Peter Zumthor, Peter Märkli, and Alvaro Siza, artists James Turell and Cristina Iglesias, and musician Jojo Mayer, Schaub explores the magic of sacred spaces, a term that for him represents much more than just churches.

Architecture of Infinity traces spirituality in architecture and fine arts as well as in nature, moving beyond the limits of thought. The lightly floating camera immerses the viewer in somnambulistic images, taking us on a sensual and sensing journey through vast spaces, guiding our eyes towards the star-spangled sky’s infinity and the depths of the ocean. Past and present, primeval times and light years, we see it all through Schaub’s work.
