Description
Directed by Maurizius Staerkle Drux
Gottfried Böhm is regarded as Germany’s preeminent Architect. His father, wife, and three sons are all architects as well. Professional collaboration within the family appears to be an equally fertile and fragile proposition.

Concrete Love is the first and only documentary about one of Germany’s preeminent architects, Gottfried Böhm. The only German winner of the prestigious Pritzker Prize for Architecture, Böhm is also the patriarch of an architecture dynasty with his three sons Stephan, Peter, and Paul. After the death of his wife Elisabeth, a key source of inspiration for all four Böhms, the family loses its emotional center. This film paints an intimate and pointed portrait of the complexity and inseparability of love, art, and architecture. (2015, 88 min, digital)
