Ned Dodington, senior AIA associate, says, “Architecture touches every part of our daily lives. An awareness and appreciation of our built environment is vital to improving our quality of life...This year’s ArCH film festival addresses these quality-of-life issues head-on — it’s really a fantastic line-up.” Other films in the three-day festival are The Human Scale, a look at work by Danish architect Jan Gehl and other urban planners to transform major cities to a more user-friendly standard, and Biophilic Design, an examination of green architecture and the trend to create buildings that connect people to nature.
All films screen at 7 p.m. Battle for Brooklyn screens on August 21, The Human Scale on August 22 and Biophilic Design on August 23. Architecture Center Houston, 315 Capitol. For information, call 713-520-0155 or visit aiahouston.org. $10 to $20.
