THE INFINITE HAPPINESS [with following talk]
Design Schau! Film MCBW FORUM

The "8 House" by the Danish architect Bjarke Ingels is a successful model of contemporary housing development. And it’s not just a house: it’s an innovative social model.
The multi award-winning building complex – with 1000 residents practically a village– is located in a Copenhagen suburb. The directors grant an unusually deep insight into the everyday life of the 8 House residents, including their hobbies, rituals and domestic animals. They take an intimate perspective and question the ability of architecture to create collective happiness. The resulting film is an ode to the social power of architecture!
Documentary, France, Germany, 2016
