A New Video: German & EU Legal Buildings

In Aesthetics, narrative, form, Architecture, Conversations, Europe, Germany, Video on January 24, 2013 at 6:37 pm

Here’s my latest mini-documentary from my recent trip to Europe—it’s called “Law in Stone & Glass,” and it’s about German and EU legal architecture. I hope you all enjoy it.

Thanks for all your recent emails. Please know how much I enjoy hearing from you!

Update 5/10/13. Here is a videotaped lecture by anthropologist Alan Macfarlane that provides a broad historical context—the social history of glass—for the themes I explore in the video. I’m also looking forward to reading his book (with Gerry Martin) The Glass Bathyscaphe. HT: Breviosity.

  1. Love this new video; I especially like the Q’s you ask near the end about our selves in relation to these structures and their components. The music is delightful. I’d love to hop on the train and go with you.
