[000:00:00;00] ah, either you love it or you hate it. brutal is architecture is still dividing. opinions on a trip to london will find out from its fans. what makes it so special? hi everyone, and welcome to another edition of your max with me your host. megan lee. here's a look at what else we've got in store for you. today. we dive into a major archaeological discovery off the coast of france. and we sink our teeth into a summer delicacy in spain, snails, it's bold, it's aggressive, and people are divided over. it's beauty,
2:03 am
i'm talking about brutal as to architecture. it's a style that developed in the 19 fifties and was meant to be simple and functional . but these heavy, concrete structures began to lose their popularity in the eighty's because people viewed them as to cold. well, many examples that still exist and have developed a cult following, especially in the u. k, where the movement began. oh, clean lines. plenty of concrete and monumental boldness. the architectural style known as brutal ism polarizes like no other. some see the heavy weight buildings as oppressive. others say they are daring ventures in architecture that deserve to be seen and protected. bracey mist architecture for me is such an exciting, bold and ambitious project. it's really will say, squeezed into a few years in the 20th century,
2:04 am
but in those years we managed to build some of the most fantastic and bowls and adventurous buildings that the country's ever seen. conservator, henrietta billing says, put her fascination with brutal ism to paper. she's great at a map of 50 buildings in this style around london. one of her favorites can be found in west london, the 98 meter high trellis tower. it was designed as social housing by the british, hungarian architect and who goldfinger and completed in 1972 back then it was the u . case, tallest residential high rise, and nicknamed the tower of terror because of the area's high crime rate. but these days, it's a popular residential area, and the iconic building is even available as a souvenir. panic tower is a real landmark of london. not only because of its absolutely monumental architecture, it's really striking silhouette,
2:05 am
but it's also really recognizable from anywhere. and it's probably one of the reasons why it's been so successful in terms of merchandising. back to the center, the capital's biggest ensemble of brutal hist, architecture is located in the city, london's financial district. here we find the barbecue, designed by the british architecture farm, chamberlain, powell and bon, when it was opened in 1982 queen elizabeth the 2nd described it as a modern wonder of the world. visitors can learn about its unique concept in guided tours. using this amount of concrete is, am, would be impossible today, they would just be 40 energy intensive in far too expensive, but not only that is the technique with which they used to create their surface. and it is using a drill essentially what come in drilling this f as to create this really uneven texture. the barbican includes a performing arts center, an art gallery and residential complexes. architect melanie schubert has renovated
2:06 am
some 2000 of the plats for clients. she's lived in one of them herself for a while and knows that many of her former neighbors are bands of brutal is a brutal isn't i really like it. but i think if you come with no troy a knowledge of brutal isn't all the bobby can all modern architecture. i think it's, it's a bit difficult. intermittent green areas form oases in the urban desert. the 3 residential towers reaching 123 meters high number among london's tallest buildings also unique for the high walks reserved for pedestrians, while road traffic passes beneath. henrietta fillings also appreciates the barbarians, shifting perspectives and simplicity. we're just looking at stack a hair into one of the blocks, but it's just 3 simple materials, concrete, steel and glass. what i love about is just the simplicity of it. and through that simplicity, you get designs, like they said, the and through the glass,
2:07 am
you see the concrete stage. and again, you see the steel banisters to even 3 the glass. you see the same repetition of material. i love it. on the south bank of the thames between westminster palace and tower bridge stands london's most prominent, brutal is structure. the royal national theatre designed by english architect sir dennis langston, and completed in 1976. prince charles once compared it to a nuclear power plant. the complex was renovated for some 100000000 euros, and the theater is protected. other brutal structures are in danger of demolition. what we need to be careful of is demolishing those buildings because we think that they have less value because we think that that modern and they de any protecting. but actually, it's exactly why we do need to make sure that the best examples of protected brutal
2:08 am
isn't an architectural style that divides opinion which is definitely worth seeing for divers this, these are like unexplored museums. this was certainly the case for one french diver in 1985 off the coast of southern france. o re costs garr discovered cave paintings that were over 30000 years old. but due to the extreme difficulty of reaching the caves, the artworks remained off limits to most people. until now, we visited a new museum where you don't need a diver certificate to enjoy them. just a few kilometers off the french coast from my st, lies a hidden archaeological treasure. in 1985 diver, all re coast care happened upon the entrance to
2:09 am
a flooded cabin and his discovery made waves. mm hm. did. i just like to wander around it on the lookout for new places, and it was my curiosity that led me to find this hole less than 37 meters down with and one meter 20 high or you swim through a tunnel. 175 meters was and end up in a large cavern up. the cave is submerged and just a 3rd remains intact. good to others are under water. there are stalactites lance, to lag my that it resembles a greek tempo public. the image is a really extraordinary measure except show that the coast care case was named off to him. it's the only known underwater cabin in the world. with pre historic rock paintings. the 500 works of art, a 33000 years old. the time the cave entrance was far above sea level in the villa mid attorney and must say
2:10 am
a replica of the cave was built to preserve a piece of humanity's history. olive northern on board. there were many challenges do for the 1st twist though. it consisted of integrating a breast or a cave and 2 an existing building would do you. but it's a geologically very complex case, full of stalactites and stalagmites, but with a very low, a seal army national backorder. so we had to build a walkway to allow visitors through it on time to do all the bluff, one of them. the cave replica took 2 years to build and cost $24000000.00 euros. about 250 artists, scientists and crofts, people were involved. the most labor intensive part of the project was recreating artworks in intricate detail. the numerous engravings and paintings by stone age people are impressive. also from a research perspective, many of the pre historic images depict animals, especially horses, bison,
2:11 am
and great hawks, an extinct flightless species of birds. one particularly common motif, a human hands even though mysteriously pops of fingers are often missing lip with there are different possible explanation that these hands with missing fingers might be expressing a sort of sign language. and we mustn't forget these people were hunter gatherers. and while out hunting, it's sometimes easier and safer to communicate using gestures than to yell or speak loudly to avoid scaring off hurts of animals. rising sea levels have probably destroyed many of the cave paintings in the cost care cave, but the copy of this world heritage site enables visitors to experience at up close spanning 1700 square meters. it's a 3rd smaller than the original on it does. it's a prehistoric side, it's like a miracle. good. all the scientists wouldn't say it ought to have been destroyed
2:12 am
long ago by solidity in a plastic waste and rising sea levels. yeah. it's an extraordinary sight money, but we're probably soon going to happen. other coastal regions plagued by these problems. people. remo option the original cosca cave is now in nature conservation site and off limits to visitors. unfortunately, it's threatened by climate change. scientists fear these precious works of art could be completely underwater by the end of the 21st century. we stay in southern europe for, for a summer delicacy, snails, while this time of year, the spanish city of yates goes all out for this call in airy specialty. a 3 day festival is devoted to this now, which is prepared in numerous ways in
2:13 am
a myriad of dishes. my favorite is with garlic now whilst now might not appeal to your palate, the residence of yada, and there are 3 z as him about these small shelled creatures might get you to change your mind. eating snails is easy. you eat them with a skewer. you stick it into the shell. that's the best part of the snail. a bit of i early a special man is with garlic. delicious weather with ham and sausages. boron bay, yet at the biggest snell festival in the world and yea, thou western catalonia snails are cooked in all kinds of ways. i, there are many recipes. everyone makes them their way up. during this 3 day event, 13 tons of smells are grilled cooked and of course eaten over
2:14 am
$100.00 spanish snail. eaten clubs. take part in the one headed by an a. yeah, this is named after the famed garlic mayonnaise. i already up in a club has cooled, the i early fly. these are the flags, every club house, and each year we get a new band. we now have 26. it all started with my mother who would make home made our yearly. ideally she was really good of it. 2 and that's why we got our name. if what if you eat snails with our yearly sources, difficult, it's going to hold it. no. snell dishes complete without garlic onions and olive oil. but naturally, every club has its own specific recipes to day and a yobbos is serving up a classic at what's known as the app like festival that i had. that was nails allegory, montana, with onions, vegetables, bake,
2:15 am
bacon and snails got up olive and with a shot of canyon and flour, to thicken the sauce fat no less for the sauce, it's a real treat all mixed together. oh man, a few stance down lotus. torso from the front on club is master of the big pan. vegetables and garlic are already sizzling inside. like they must buy a yeah. we're cooking pie. yeah. which snail so much. you out a bit of onions and pepper. we've already prepared the i'm if you put in chicken broth and right. we call it pena. i lost him on time. yeah. meaning rice from the mountains. yeah, i cook at the same way. my mother and grandma did, but every one has their own method with my fmla. there are 14000 club, were we our opinion members here? and pretty much everyone thinks their club recipe is the best that you have a season snails,
2:16 am
otherwise they just don't taste good air. we've got cured pork chops, chicken legs, and snails are fully bacon. rabbit and blood sausage and snails. mm hm. what i anything else a shot of whiskey with this is a typical snail classic and lee that was hold on with just a salt oil and a dash it black pepper nigger. that's it. i some use other spices, but that drowns out the flavor of the snell. yet, of course, of maria vase is a co founder of the festival and neither a city with around $135000.00 inhabitants. nowhere in the world are people as fond of snails as here. but i know not as if the tradition originated in the fields, what get people armors had alabama. you a simple metal dish with them and would collect snails while they worked out. how about you about an equal fin before lunch, indigo. they would then take
2:17 am
a tray like this one and put the snails on it. did i start a fire and eat them with young men? and then i know been with you in 1979. i don't like the idea of a snail festival was brought to light. this is my bounder metal from the knights of the order of the snails. nowadays, snails are bread and dedicated farms. jose marcello runs one himself nor year that after the animals hatch, he releases them. minimum trip on it. look in the 1st few days, we released them and to lush grass. then after we 3, we feed them serial flour. ms. nails are low in calories, bat, and collateral. yet they're rich in iron, russia, so they won't make you fat 0. godaddy part is the sauce you eat with us today, but not the snails themselves. like when you seen a thing, go to them. but in you that people aren't too worried about calories at the biggest smell festival in the world. all that counts is the taste.

2:19 am
becoming increasingly hard to find hand beat in gold leaf in today's day and age. and that's because this intricate method of production is a dying trade. for example, in venice, italy, in the 18th century, there were $300.00 so called gold beaters. today, however, there was only one family left there that is dedicated to this ancient tradition. ah much of what glitters here. ease, indeed gold. for centuries, venice has flaunted its wealth with this precious metal. now very few craft men's shops are left that work gold by hand. the many goth so family runs one of the world's last gold beating shops under the name motto, barracka, becky laura great, griffin. you don't really need that much strength for this work though it's all
2:20 am
a question of technique. can you got your technique actually helps you work? with less effort for the mean of what the go, that's important because depending on how thin the gold is supposed to end up muted on, it'll take anywhere from 50 minutes to 2 and a half hours to hammer it out to a would a mazda, the purest $24.00 karat gold is melted at over $1000.00 degrees celsius and cast as a small bar, which by itself has a value of about 6000 euros. laura crystal and lingual this little gold bar is about 120 gramsci, depending on the thickness required of the gold leave. every more we can make 80026000 pieces from it. they need a full year 1st, the gold is passed through a rolling mel several times. pressing it thinner each time. it's rolled into a long ribbon heated, over and over,
2:21 am
and put through the mil again. if we were to go ahead and if the color is nice and yellow with lucky, you know, the gold is pure enough, seen it to the i city jump, the hue tends towards red a shuttle, you know, it's an alloy, know she sold it might then contain silver or a little copper ink or that vega in. when the gold ribbon is several meters long, it's cut into length folded and cut again into little squares. sada many godsa lays these between sheets of parchment to separate them during the beating. you've all your pocket consists of 330 last 1st they're beaten with a machine and then quarter one more value for them. and then while they're worked with a hammer, so it may so the rough or market let out both of them on the final step is the hammering. this is how gold leaf was made in venice a 1000 years ago. at that time,
2:22 am
there were no machines to help with the heavy work crystal or that is a hammer weighs 2 kilos. almost nothing, crispin, but then this one weighs more kilos, so it's a bit heavier. but for me that's nothing. kristen with it. and at 8 hilo. well this one's pretty heavy to the, the hammering produces thousands of these gossamer leaves. a single leaf weighs barely as much as a hare. ellia nora men, a god. so hopes this age old craft may be passed on to the next generation. alan base oh it's a great responsibility because this very special work is in danger of dying out and that's not a nice thought that this could one day just be forgotten for mileage. the weird paints attic air force su out that, that in arc restorer and gilder elizabeth, the mass on uses a great deal of moto better thought. but the laura's gold leaf. in her workshop, he takes
2:23 am
a steady hand and the right conditions to work with this delicate material. even a gentle breeze could ruin everything. shimoda the fittings set, the difference between industrially produced and hand made gold leaf is enormous, would've been the industrial gold leaf is much thinner and more fragile. though, philip, it's really hard to do good work with the leaf tears easily. and in the end, it just doesn't look as good as the hand made gold leaf. it isn't that the finale ankin 80 saying they oh, the angel, the top st. mark's company lay is among the works restored using gold leaf for mario. better about the logo. thanks to an age old handicraft, the queen of the adrie attic shines on ah, freedom of expression and the ability to access information at any time without

restriction is now possible here in germany. but of course, that wasn't always the case in order to demonstrate what it's like to live in places where these freedoms are limited. a team from d, w developed a game called freedom, isn't free. you can play it directly on your smartphone. and this is how it works. freedom isn't free, is a game that plays in an alternate reality in which germany has become a police state. after a massive power blackout. mia, a civil liberties activist has vanished. play as receive a call for help. the basque finding your friend mia. she's missing after researching a murder case in berlin. the concept for this project by darcia bellow was to inform about topics such as oppression and human rights in a novel into active way. but it actually gives a few too many people working at deutsch avila have experienced living in an
2:25 am
oppressive regime, fighting and they shared these with the project in, in a game format. and con, you can transmit such an experience in a more intense way, right? because the players contribute to the action interactively, i'm looking at which makes it more immersive e d. m, as you and few sick was us to try to find out what happened, plays, communicate with a chat, thought named alissa on what's apple telegram, they send text messages to help solve the mystery and do research online. since the internet is mostly off limits to alyssa if wouldn't i? it's kind of a, we didn't want to have an educational game that provides learning content directly really. but to have that happen more subliminally, that book in the conversation, you discover that alyssa is the person you're chatting with chat a can't look for news articles and search engines was that she's in constant fear of being monitored with issues that she's afraid of the police watching her over so that subtly puts across what it's like to live under a repressive regime,

dose valley from little. but how do you turn an idea into a game? the d w t brought and gaming experts from d hiv game hop at berlin's university of applied sciences. they developed the game design and how to program the chat box. for software uses artificial intelligence to interpret the play as input. so the interaction with a list of the chap bought fuses natural as possible. ah. in this case the immersion is very strong because it closely resembles using a mobile phone. it will be you chat every day. sure. it's part of daily life. and i think that's what's interesting about this project funded the message. i slips into this every day activity. i'm taking something you do all the time. but bringing you to a totally different situation. it got a totally different narrative and different settings. and that's what makes this approach so exciting and fascinating fun. the freedom isn't free project shows just
