But studying architecture shapes how we see, understand and interpret the world. A building, a neighborhood, a city &mdash; each is the result of particular priorities, circumstances and choices.</p><p>It&rsquo;s a startling realization, especially for young people, but also inspiring. Our surroundings are not merely the way they are &mdash;&nbsp;they are the way that people have made them to be.</p><p>Over the last 10 years, Washington University in St. Louis&rsquo;&nbsp;<a href="http://samfoxschool.wustl.edu/alberti_program" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Alberti Program</a>&nbsp;has introduced hundreds of kids, ranging from 8 to 15 years old, to the power and potential of architecture and design.

REM follows its titular architect around the world, visiting his projects and investigating their human impact. Aware of his special perspective on the film's subject, Tomas didn't want the film to be a teary biopic or heady architectural salvo, but something more impressionistic and accessible, appealing to emotions over intellectualism. We speak about managing family relationships in creative work, his influences as a filmmaker, and film's role in architectural media at large.</p><p>Listen to&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/670405/one-to-one" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">One-to-One</a>&nbsp;#39 with&nbsp;<strong>Tomas Koolhaas</strong>:</p><ul><li><strong>iTunes</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/neil-denari/id1057340260?i=356797877" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Click here to listen&nbsp;and subscribe to the new&nbsp;"Archinect Sessions One-to-One" podcast</a></li><li><strong>SoundCloud</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://soundcloud.com/archinect" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">click here to follow Archinect</a></li><li><strong>RSS</strong>: subscribe with any of your favorite podcasting apps via our RSS feed:&nbsp;<a href="http://onetoone.libsyn.com/rss" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://onetoone.libsyn.com/rss</a></li><li><strong>Download</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://traffic.libsyn.com/onetoone/One_To_One_Episode_39_Tomas_Koolhaas.mp3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">this episode</a></li></ul><p></p><p><strong>Shownotes</strong>:</p><p><em>REM</em>'s trailer:</p><p></p><p>Screenshots from REM&nbsp;&darr;</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/f9/f9ri9xg2onn0uvb3.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/dy/dyicw1xlcirfox0w.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/lm/lmvb5szerw1wgh7w.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/dn/dn8aruzp88xntds1.jpg"></p><p>Film...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/149970285/ten-top-images-on-archinect-s-details-pinterest-board Ten Top Images on Archinect's "Details" Pinterest Board Archinect 2016-09-23T17:12:00-04:00 >2016-09-23T17:14:56-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/5k/5kfaookrzp7u0pay.jpg" width="514" height="586" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>In case you haven't checked out <a href="http://pinterest.com/archinect/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Archinect's Pinterest</a> boards in a while, we have compiled ten recently pinned images from outstanding projects on various Archinect <a href="http://archinect.com/firms" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Firm</a> and <a href="http://archinect.com/people" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">People</a> profiles.</p><p>(<strong>Tip:</strong> use the handy <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/69075090/7-reasons-why-you-need-to-be-using-archinect-s-follow-feature" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">FOLLOW feature</a> to easily keep up-to-date with all your favorite Archinect profiles!)</p><p>Today's top images (in no particular order) are from the board <a href="http://pinterest.com/archinect/details/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><em>Details</em></a>.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/pf/pfebhohqhd54u92i.jpg"></p><p>&uarr;

More importantly, how are these dreams executed, and how do we live in the corresponding gap between vision and reality? For the residents of the U.K. towns Basildon and Essex, who dwell in post-World War II "New Towns" designed to be social utopias, their struggles to thrive in a globalized reality are being chronicled in the documentary "New Town Utopias." The filmmakers, who have shot over 100 hours of footage, are currently seeking funding via <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/301810924/new-town-utopia" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Kickstarter</a> to help them complete the film.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/91/910o1gh3ddyqtt2t.jpg"></p><p>While the film centers around the creative community, it also investigates the larger historical questions of place and belonging.

The piece then delves into the beauty, power, and ambiance of that particular locale as it relates to each film's plot. Unsurprisingly, Jim Jarmusch's work makes a few appearances, as does the original 1997 version of "Insomnia," which qualifies as pretty much the most <em>noir</em> movie ever shot entirely in daylight.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/9m/9m5sjxhoarz6ircs.jpg"><br><em>Screenshot from "Insomnia."</em></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/8u/8ue0ae2jhna0wtu2.jpg"><br><em>Screenshot from "Night on Earth."</em></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/df/df1oump0b5h7t26u.jpg"><br><em>Screenshot from "Mystery Train."</em></p><p>As a kind of thesis statement, the piece explains that:</p><p>"The films listed rely on the narrative space and its geographical and sociological specifications.

From the viewer's position in the middle of the gallery, atop a double-yellow line, they assume the perspective of "the most privileged and uninhabitable location in Los Angeles&mdash;the middle of the road."

As Calvert 22&rsquo;s Power and Architecture season demonstrates, there is a healthy interest in the abandoned or neglected buildings that once served as landmarks of Soviet ambition: the rack and ruin of utopia.
