Die Architekten

Die Architekten

DDR 1989/1990, Spielfilm

Inhalt

A group of young architects is commissioned to build the centre of a vast new housing project. After years of dull work routine, it's their chance to create something from scratch, and Daniel was able to handpick each member of the team – just like the glorious seven. A cinema, a Vietnamese restaurant, an ice cream parlor, recreational areas, a harmonious interplay of nature and art – they come up with many ideas for a friendly living space. Which will never be realized in its intended way. In the end, just the torso of their creation remains – without the joy and imagination.
