Exhibition “Community • Co-design • Architecture” in Hanoi
Exhibition “Community • Co-design • Architecture” in Hanoi.
The one-month exhibition entitled “Community • Co-design • Architecture”, curated for presenting collaborative design processes in community-based architecture projects, researched and developed by Norwegian architect Alexander E. Furunes under Norwegian Artistic Research Program, will be held at Nanoco Gallery, 83 Lang Street, Hanoi from July 6 through August 5.
Jointly organized by Nanoco gallery and “Action for Lùng Tám” project, it features a series of talk shows where the exhibitor and “Action for Lùng Tám” team will directly explain and discuss the co-design processes and its impact on developing sustainable communities, illustrated by actual previous projects in India, China and Philippines and an ongoing project in Ha Giang.
The exhibition focuses on the questions: What can architecture do? How can the way it’s made have an impact beyond the building itself? And who should eventually benefit from the project?
All presented models and items for “Action For Lung Tam” project at the exhibition will be re-designed and donated to Lung Tam Cooperative for their own future construction.
Alexander E. Furunes started his studies at NTNU, Norway and continued at the AA School of Architecture in London. He received his master’s degree in architecture from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in January 2014.
He is also one of three founders of workshop architecture, a collective of architects and engineers that explore the potential of engaging communities in creative processes in design and build projects.
The Classic Rom-Coms movie month: “Some Like It Hot”
The Classic Rom-Coms movie month: “Some Like It Hot”.
In the second week of the Classic Rom-Coms movie month, this Jul 7, you are invited to the screening of Some Like It Hot (1959). The film directed by Billy Wilder.
Some Like It Hot is a film set in 1929, directed and produced by Billy Wilder, starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon. The supporting cast includes George Raft, Pat O’Brien, Joe E. Brown, Joan Shawlee, and Nehemiah Persoff. The plot is based on a screenplay by Billy Wilder and Michael Logan from the French film Fanfare of Love.
The film is about two musicians who dress in drag in order to escape from mafia gangsters whom they witnessed commit a crime inspired by the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre. The film was produced in black and white, even though color films were increasing in popularity.
Some Like It Hot opened to largely positive reviews and is today considered to be one of the greatest film comedies of all time. It was voted as the top comedy film by the American Film Institute on their list on AFI’s 100 Years… 100 Laughs poll in 2000.
The film is also notable for featuring cross dressing, and for playing with the idea of homosexuality, which led to it being produced without approval from the Motion Picture Production Code. The code had been gradually weakening in its scope during the early 1950s, due to increasing social tolerance for previously taboo topics in film, but it was still officially enforced. The overwhelming success of Some Like It Hot was a final nail in the coffin for the Hays Code.

“With strong performances, the gorgeously overwhelming environment, and at least one agonizingly long close-up, Age of Uprising unsettles as it raises troubling questions about the price, morality and flexibility of a “principled stand.” – Portland Oregonian
In the 16th century in the Cévennes, a horse dealer by the name of Michael Kohlhaas leads a happy family life. When a lord treats him unjustly, he raises an army and puts the country to fire and sword in order to have his rights restored.
