Call for registrations to 2A City – Architecture Movie Awards 2020

The 2A City-Architecture Movie Awards were founded by Ahmad Zohadi – CEO and the editor in chief of the 2A Magazine to honor architecture and movies whose built work demonstrates a blend of qualities of talent, idea, vision, as well as commitment.

The ultimate motive behind bringing two Arts of Architecture and Cinema together lies in the conviction that the symbiotic association between architecture and film stalks from architecture’s effect on its built environment and its resolute social/cultural influence.

The place of life and that of death.

Between physical forest and inner forest is the woods in the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood even if according to the original fairy tale, the forest is necessarily a transition point (...)
