PR Great Expectations: A Journey Through The History Of Visionary Architecture on DVD Oct 5

Icarus Films



An astonishing journey through innovative, futuristic, utopian and sometimes bizarre architectural projects- including concrete illusions of grandeur and Lego-like modular apartments to an Instant City Airship and round, grass-covered subterranean dwellings- from the beginning of the 20th century to today.

Icarus Films is proud to release Jesper Wachtmeister's Great Expectations: A Journey Through The History Of Visionary Architecture on home video for the first time on October 5, 2010.

An astonishing journey through innovative, futuristic, utopian and sometimes bizarre architectural projects- including concrete illusions of grandeur and Lego-like modular apartments to an Instant City Airship and round, grass-covered subterranean dwellings- from the beginning of the 20th century to today.



Featuring Le Corbusier's functionalist cities, Buckminster Fuller's lightweight geodesic domes, Moshe Safdie's Habitat '67 prefab apartments, Oscar Niemeyer's sleek urban designs for Brasilia, Antti Lovag's curved surfaces of Palais Bulles in France, and other extraordinary works by visionary architects.

Plus Bonus Film: KOCHUU: Japanese Architecture / Influence & Origin also directed by Jesper Wachtmeister

A visually stunning film about modern Japanese architecture, its roots in Japanese tradition, and their relationships to modernist Scandinavian design.



For a slideshow of some of the bizarre modernist architecture featured in GREAT EXPECTATIONS, including the above heart building, please see: SLIDESHOW

"Exciting...these architects seldom get the chance to speak freely in this way. This gives the content weight and lends plausibility to their visions...Great Expectations gives one an appetite for visionary architecture."Rum Architecture & Design Magazine

Please see here for the official site to the film.

Total running time: 105 minutes / color / SRP: $24.98 / Release date: Oct. 5, 2010.
