CRESTA is a new documentary on architecture shot by Jeff Durkin. He interviews architect Jonathan Segals to discuss where structures are headed in the future, and the relationship between a building and nature.

Minimalism is a big component of Jeff Durkin's work, as he enjoys stripping down a piece of architecture to its bare bones, and looking at it for what it really is. Lately he's been using a concrete material that fools onlookers into thinking it's wood. From a distance, it's easy to understand how one would think this, as the design has the same kind of texture. Overall, however, Durkin's main message in CRESTA is how minimalism can provide a great balance between urban living and making the most of nature.
