Architectural historian and theoretician, Siegfreid Giodion declared:
Still photography does not capture them clearly. One would have to accompany the eye as it moves: only film can make the new architecture intelligible

I have sent emails to filmmakers/experts in both architecture and film:
Marc Boumeester is currently coordinator and lecturer at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, as developer/lecturer at the Delft University of Technology, Delft School Of Design department of Architectural Theory and as developer/lecturer at the Delft University of Technology department of Media-studies. This combination gives opportunity to further develop the newly found field of expertise, linking directly architecture and public space to the application of unstable media techniques in order to come to a better understanding and use of these forms of communication, also embedding them directly in the curriculum of the various educational institutions. Besides this he is working as a free-lance consultant. His networks span from the obvious directly work related to the more glamorous such as the International Art Experts Forum at the ARCO in Madrid.
