Can Brutalism be adapted and updated for the 21st century? This was the challenge of aesthetics, philosophy, and construction that architecture firm 6a had to tackle when creating a new residential court for the famous Churchill College at Cambridge.
“Cowan Court” is a residence from the early 1960s, at the Churchill College, University of Cambridge. Half a century later, an architecture group “6a” turns the Brutalism of the original college into an innovative timber building. Ben Rivers using black-and-white and color films, with audio-visual references including pictures, blueprints, and noises, unearths the history deposited in the place. Based on the spatial design of the director, Trees Down Here is displayed as one-channel projection.
