Rotunda film

With the Rotunda reopening last week it seemed a good time to show Rosalind Fowler's film about the building's past. Calling her work "salvage anthropology", Fowler combines interviews with some of the inhabitants of the old Rotunda - including original architect Jim Roberts - with footage of the building shortly before it was closed down for refurbishment. It'll be showing at 7inch this Sunday, after Travelling for a Living.

This industry writeup gives some background on the new version, introducing us to some nice building terms like "spandrel panels".
