The Film Archive of Architecture is a Arquia Foundation cultural programme that was established as a framework, promotion and dissemination of architecture, containing audiovisual documents on architecture and architects, showing their creative, cultural and social dimensions.

Intended primarily for students, architects and institutions of the sector, the Film Archive is also directed to all professionals involved in the architectural environment, the construction of buildings and generally interested in architecture, as well as film buffs.

Free viewing

The catalogue that is available for viewing consists of a selection of documentaries recorded in the Arquia Foundation Documentary Library. Since temporarily available works on-line from arquia/filmoteca are constantly increasing in number, we recommend that you register as a user to enjoy the Documentary Library so you can keep up with all the new items added.

Initially, each user can enjoy up to three monthly viewings of the same audiovisual item and a maximum of twenty different titles, which can be chosen from the works in the catalogue of viewings available at that time.
