A striking architecture film takes a poetic look at the new Educational Centre of the Erasmus MC academic hospital in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Directed by Victor Vroegindeweij, the film itself was commissioned by KAAN Architecten on the occasion of the building being nominated for this year’s European Union Architecture Award ‘Mies van der Rohe’.

Borrowing its title from the poem ‘When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer’ by Walt Whitman, which raises questions about the relationship between objective knowledge and subjective human experiences, the film acts as the perfect commentary on what the role and function of a medical university’s library should and could be.
