Spirit of Space is the first filmmaking collaborative dedicated to architecture and design.

Adam Goss and RedMike Marianek founded spirit of Space based on the belief that buildings tell stories. As a team they have become the architecture paparazzi with a filmography of over 200 film shorts for architects and designers such as Jeanne Gang, Amanda Williams, Steven Holl, Wolf Prix, and Daniel Libeskind. Their films forever document the contemporary experience of visiting the best design landscapes, buildings, and structures. Through an independent lens, they cultivate empathy for people and place.

Spirit of Space films are exhibited in museums, biennials, and galleries, but in keeping with their belief that design should be accessible to everyone almost all of their work is found online and distributed through educational lectures and public events.

We were architects first.

Our process is design driven.

We observe the place, we sketch the storyboard, and then we dig into the design concept to develop a narrative that resonates intensely.
