The documentary Centrallurgy, created by Romea Muryn (architect, Poland) and Francisco Lobo (filmmaker, Portugal) provides a creative and engaging overview of what defines Mariupol, drawing their research on anthropology, economy, social and cultural history, literature and philosophy to reach an understanding of what makes Mariupol. What will the future bring to this heavily industrialised coastal city of regional significance?
Centrallurgy as a main focus of the project Architecture Ukraine – Beyond the Front in Venice, as a collateral event of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.
Architecture Ukraine (AU) – Beyond the Front begins a dialogue on a crucial issue of our time: envisioning the future of cities in places of ongoing conflict. Do architecture and design play a role in the existing state of affairs? Can we make fundamental changes to the presuppositions that determine the way we live and thrive in the urban environments of our regional conflicts?
