In this brief video from filmmaker Jeff Durkin, Calatrava's elaborate transit hub canopy is sited in its aesthetic and social contexts via a series of carefully selected voice-over news clips and aesthetic commentary. Here, the horror of 9/11, the beauty of human perception, and sweeping shots of the architecture itself are layered to create this filmmaker's interpretation of what the Oculus is.

When things didn&rsquo;t pan out that way, she took revenge by heading to the courts.</p><p>But, as a former <a href="http://archinect.com/features/article/128649077/screen-print-33-the-alternative-history-of-edith-farnsworth-and-her-architect-from-mit-s-thresholds" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Screen/Print</a> revealed, that story isn&rsquo;t just inaccurate&mdash;it&rsquo;s laden with sexist assumptions. Namely, that a woman couldn&rsquo;t simply be dissatisfied with an architectural &ldquo;masterwork&rdquo; because of its formal flaws. She had to be driven by &ldquo;feminine&rdquo; emotions.</p><p>Anyway, it&rsquo;s still a good story. And now it&rsquo;s heading to the silver screen.

Entitled "Ex of IN House," the video explores the formulation, execution, and daily reality of a home built on a splendor of acreage in Rhinebeck, New York. Likening program to a bunch of bananas, Holl advocates for abstraction in the design process, explaining that with the concept of IN, "all space is sacred."
