BKino is intended as an informal event (a cinema and, therefore, not a cine-forum) aiming at recreating a culture of participation and studentship within the faculty, now that things are opening up to, almost, a pre-pandemic state of affairs. The proposed films follow neither a particular theme nor a specific style. The only recurrent aspect of the program is to have films that are ‘set in places’, with a clear intention to narrate not simply the protagonist’s tale, but also the story of their settings, whether real or fictional. This approach follows a belief that people interested in the built environment, when watching films collectively, will enjoy talking with each other about space and place, and how the film camera, as a narrative tool, relates to them in distinctive ways.

Deep down we are all pubescent little children. Or in any case, I probably am. I pretend that when I look at a building I check for the right proportions, materials and concept. But somewhere in this very serious process of evaluating a piece of architecture my brain makes one final check: does this building resemble genitals in any way? Often it does. Am I just a degenerate or have stumbled on a common motif in architecture?
