TRANSFER Global Architecture Platform launch the TRANSFER Architecture Video Award 2019, an independent award to recognise the most creative and innovative short films in the field of architecture, city and landscape worldwide. The award is global in scope and open to filmmakers, architects, artists, photographers or any individual or group whose video work is related with the previously mentioned fields.
The TRANSFER Architecture Video Award aims to highlight the contributions that best represent new means of knowledge and analysis of architecture using video as a support. The main criteria are the short film’s contribution to exploring innovative ways of analysing and experiencing architecture, city and landscape, the relevance of the topic and its social impact, and a high standard of production.
TRANSFER Global Architecture Platform is an independent digital editorial project launched on 2015 that is based on the production and transmission of high-quality architectural content. By connecting contemporary ideas and practices, TRANSFER aims to broaden the global culture of architecture and to become a reference in the generation of leading architectural knowledge. The award is born with the aim to explore new ways of showing and experiencing architecture with digital media, and thus contributing to expand the boundaries of contemporary digital publishing.
