Festivals also took place again in 2001 and 2003. In 2007 AFFR made a fresh start after a few years of silence. In 2009 the event expanded significantly in terms of visitor numbers and programming.

A Plan for Paradise, Kati Juurus, 2023

Build a city for 600,000 inhabitants in a valley outside Kathmandu. ‘We can do that,’ said the Finnish architecture firm Helin&Co. After winning a competition for a masterplan, they set to work briskly. What follows is a sometimes hilarious clash between two cultures.

The Promise. Architect BV Doshi, Jan Schmidt-Garre, 2023

The Indian architect Blakrishna Doshi worked with Louis Kahn and Le Corbusier, but he developed a unique modern Indian design language of his own. In this beautiful portrait of an amiable individual, he visits his most important projects one last time.

Skin of Glass, Denise Zmekhol, 2023

The dramatic fate of a modernist office tower in Sao Paulo, affectionately called Skin of Glass, occupied today by hundreds of families, like a vertical favela. Filmmaker Zmekhol, daughter of the architect, made a compelling personal film about design passion, loss, social inequality and a massive building boom.

Soviet Bus Stops, Kristoffer Hegnsvad, 2022

Over the past 13 years, Christopher Herwig photographed many curious bus stops in the former Soviet Union. That resulted in an entertaining road movie that also features the inhabitants of this vast landscape.
