The Architecture + Design Film Festival, taking place this weekend, April 18 – 22, 2018 in Winnipeg, will be showing a documentary film by artist Toni Hafkenscheid.

His interests in futuristic architecture, such as Marina City in Chicago, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and Habitat ‘67 in Montreal, take the viewer on a journey into the Relics of the Future.

The same film, Relics of the Future, will screen at the Copenhagen Architecture Festival next month. This year, the annual festival takes place in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense from May 3 – 16, unfolding the theme of “home, housing and belonging“.
