Wat ass Architektur?

Visual Acoustics celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, the world’s greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture to the American mainstream.

Shulman, who passed away in 2009, captured the work of nearly every modern and progressive architect since the 1930s including Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Gehry. His images epitomized the singular beauty of Southern California’s modernist movement and brought its iconic structures to the attention of the general public. 

This unique film is both a testament to the evolution of modern architecture and a joyful portrait of the magnetic, whip-smart gentleman who chronicled it with his unforgettable images.

Introduction : 3 places, an architectural portfolio by Christian Aschman (photographer)

In his portfolio, Christian Aschman is going through 2 photography projects about documentary architecture and one personal project. In 2021 Christian Aschman collaborated as co-author on a book about the Luxembourgish architect Paul Retter. In 2018 he was commissioned by the Centre national de l’audiovisuel (CNA) to document the site of the Argrocenter in Mersch before its demolition. In Tokyo, Christian Aschman worked on a series called "the space in between".

Organised by WAA, in collaboration with Rotondes & luca – Luxembourg Center for Architecture.

Wat ass Architektur?

Wat ass Architektur? (What is architecture?) is a series of events full of discoveries around — as you might have guessed — architecture.

We live in apartments and houses, we work in various office buildings, we spend our free time in theatres, swimming pools, restaurants and public spaces. But how much do we really know about the processes of creation and construction of the architectural landscapes that surround us?
WAA has been initiated to raise questions on various topics related to architecture while presenting their relevance in a national and international context.
At every WAA evening, you can expect a movie preceded and followed by unreleased film footage by WAA, highlighting the link between the projected film and Luxembourg.
