Over the course of four days, the Festival screens films that explore the life and work of architects such as Rem Koolhaas and Bjarke Ingels, and journalist, author, and activist Jane Jacobs, and timely topics such as design for positive social change and generative healthcare design. The Museum will be the venue for all films, featuring three separate theaters, two of which will be specially outfitted for the festival, including the Museum’s iconic Great Hall.

ADFF D.C. begins with an Opening Night celebration and screening of BIG TIME.  Architect Bjarke Ingels made a name for himself and for his design firm BIG in his native Denmark, winning international acclaim for his bold, untraditional designs. Director Kaspar Astrup Schröder follows Ingels over six years as he takes on his largest project yet, relocating to New York City to create VIA 57 and then getting the commission for the new 2 World Trade Center.

How will the maverick genius balance his professional ambition and personal life when given the chance to change the city’s iconic skyline?  Find out on opening night of the festival!
