Two videos from The Guardian at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The first shows us Rem Koolhaas discussing about the London skyline, the future of the creative development of cities and the politics of building design. The remarks on creativity are more interesting than those on the London Skyline and Koolhaas tells John Plunkett, that modern architects often focus on whimsy in their buildings while hiding the functional aspect of design.
The second video shows us Annie Leibovitz discusses the role of the professional photographer in an era dominated by smartphone cameras and image-sharing sites. Speaking at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, Leibovitz argues that there is no reason to suppose that there will be any let-up in demand for high-quality stills photography.
