»Filmmaker Gary Hustwit is streaming his documentaries free worldwide during the global COVID-19 crisis. Each Tuesday we’ll be posting another film here. We hope you enjoy them, and please stay strong.
April 14 to 21: Workplace (2016, 64 minutes) is a film about the past, present, and future of the office. Made by Gary Hustwit for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, it looks at the thinking, innovation, and experimentation involved in creating the next evolution of what the office could be. Workplace follows the design and construction of the New York headquarters of digital agency R/GA (in collaboration with architects Foster + Partners) who were experimenting with how physical and digital space can better interact. Workplace features Bob Greenberg, Norman Foster, Nick Law, Barry Wacksman, Chris West, Nikil Saval, Julia Goldberg, Primo Orpilla, Amanda Carroll, and more. The film premiered at the Biennale, where a site-specific version of it screened daily from May 25 to November 27, 2016. It was not meant as a commercial release, so many people familiar with Gary’s films have probably not seen it.«
