A pair of elegiac documents of two very different world-leading museums, from two of cinema and art's greatest filmmakers, offers a cinematic counterpoint to The Architecture Foundation's ongoing If You Build It, Will They Come? talks programme.

Le Centre Georges Pompidou #
Rossellini's beautiful and languid final film documents the opening of the Pompidou Centre, candidly presenting the public's response to this major cultural phenomenon.
France 1977 Dir Roberto Rossellini 57 min

Cloud Island #
Artist Fiona Tan's intimate portrait of Japan's Inujima Island captures the site's aged residents and industrial past, at the moment of its reincarnation (via the work of Kazuyo Sejima) into an outpost of the Naoshima Fukutake Art Museum.
