A documentary film conceived as a virtual dialogue and musical journey in four acts, which investigates the responsibility of architects in building the society of tomorrow. Through the eyes of Antonio Citterio, one of the best-known Italian designers around the world, and Patricia Viel, co-founders of the Milan-based architecture and interior design practice ACPV, the film introduces a vision for the architecture of tomorrow, centered on an armistice between nature and the built environment. Alternating dialogues with various personalities from the world of fashion, art, design, and exploring pieces of architecture designed by ACPV, the documentary offers a vision of the post-Covid world, in the midst of the climate crisis and urban redistribution; from the story of computational design methods, international projects and technological innovation, to travel as the primary engine of inexhaustible inspiration. The latent energy of architectural works is evoked through musical scenes set in different parts of the world (Milan, L’Aquila, Hamburg, Taichung, Miami), where different musicians hit spatially distant notes that meet in a single composition that breaks down distances and projects man into his natural habitat, that of the cities of tomorrow.

“Our built habitat contains latent energies that can modify our confidence in the future and our prospect of happiness in a historical period in which disorientation seems to take over. We live in an era of change, in which, for the first time, nature begins to be perceived as something fundamentally integrated with us and our cities. To understand in which direction to orient our thinking, we asked one of the most important architectural firms in Italy, and around the world, to tell us about its experience and to share its vision.”
