This DVD contains 5 interviews with 5 different architects (Philip Johnson, Frank Gehry, Renzo Piano, Ricardo Legorreta and Jacques Herzog of Herzog & de Meuron).
It is a good look at these 5 architects. The interviewers guide the discussion quite well and get more than the usual bland answers (from bland questions). What comes through especially well is how quite different the 5 personalities of the 5 featured architects are: Philip Johnson comes as a very sophisticated trickster - charming, ironically playing with what he says, mock affection, etc. Frank Gehry radiates quiet satisfaction while reflecting on what he's achieved - on me, he made the impression of somebody who's gone through lots of pulling and fighting with his buildings (and clients) and demonstrates now an impeccably relaxed aura. Renzo Piano - again, to me - made an extremely sympathetic impression, showing a very humane understanding of (his) architecture. Ricardo Legorreta was very "old school", suit and bow-tie, very distinguished gentleman (as I haven't heard much of him before, it was interesting to see some of his work and the man together). Jacques Herzog finally was quite the opposite: distanced, even remote - left a strange feeling to me (as I've seen other documentaries about Herzog & de Meuron, Pierre de Meuron is definitively the more sympathetic of the two) .
If you're interested in architecture and might want to know what people the architects are, this is a good DVD. I was pleasantly surprised that the producers/interviewers were knowledgeable about their guests (and their work) - the brief retrospectives are solidly done and informative to the point.
4 stars because short interviews are only good to a point... so let's say 4 solid stars.
To anybody interested in architecture and knowing at least some of the work of some of the architects shown here, I can only recommend in getting this DVD.
