A raw account of how some of the best architects in the world, design giants like Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry or Zaha Hadid, struggle to beat the competition for the National Museum of Art in Andorra. While nearly as old as the profession itself, architectural competitions became a social, political and cultural phenomenon of the post-Guggenheim Bilbao building bubble. Taking place at the dramatic moment in which the real estate bubble became a global crisis, this is the first competition to be documented, producing an unclassifiable piece of art that may be an intense thriller, an ethnographic report as well as a cult movie around the icons of the contemporary architecture.

Tickets are $10 for the public, $8 for museum members and $5 for students (Student tickets may be purchased at the door or by phone. Must present student ID to claim). Buy tickets online, tickets may also be purchased by phone at 704.353.9200 or at the admissions desk. View the full 2018-'19 Modernism + Film lineup here.
