I’m delighted that Mario Botta: The Space Beyond will be screened on October 16, 17, 18 at the Architecture & Design Film Festival in NYC. The conversations Mario Botta and I had over the course of an amazing week in Lugano, Switzerland, were published in CHURCHES (HarperCollins, 2001). Translated by Lily Prigioniero, that interview remains Botta's most extensive interview in English. His insights into architecture’s fundamental motivations are evergreen. If you would like a PDF of the full interview, please contact me.
Mario Botta: The Space Beyond was co-directed by Loretta Dalpozzo and Michèle Volontè, and produced by Swissbridge Productions. The film will also be screened during the upcoming Rotterdam Film Festival, Beirut Art Festival, Artecinema film festival (Naples Italy), Milan Deign Film festival, and ADFF in Toronto and Vancouver.
