Aiming High

Hoch hinaus

Winter 2013 sees the opening of the 248 metre-high DC Tower designed by the French architect, Dominique Perrault. Starting from this giant made of glass and steel, the film sets out on a journey through new architectural highlights. Hannes Gellner, director and Paris resident, undertakes an exciting voyage of discovery with his protagonists and answers critical questions such as: does the construction of high-rise buildings demand specific precautions, which materials are used, and can such tall buildings generate their own energy today? Experts from the fields of architecture, urban planning, water engineering and environmental protection state their positions and identify the opportunities and limitations of large-scale projects of this nature. Spectacular aerial views of the gigantic black glass tower, animated plans and drawings from Dominique Perrault's architectural practice complement the footage. Captivating images and an affectionate eye for its subjects mark this film out.
