Architects’ Congress

The passenger ship Patris II transported the participants of the 4th International Congresses of Modern Architecture (CIAM) from Marseilles to Athens and back. Bauhaus teacher Moholy-Nagy, travelling as a “friend of the new building movement” produced this half-hour soundless film as a travel journal. Under the illuminated Acropolis, the opening of the exhibition The Functional City took place in the Technical University. On the return trip, the working sessions were held with lectures and discussions of city analysis prepared by groups from diverse countries.
