Bêka and Partners
Living Architectures: Roundtable Discussion followed by DVD + Book Launch
Date: Wednesday 31 October 2012
Venue: Lecture Hall
Takako Hasegawa with Ila Bêka, Louise Limoine and Justin Jaeckle (The Architecture Foundation) ‘Living Architectures’ film series, first of which is ‘Koolhaas Houselife’ first shown at 2008 Venice Biennale, put into question the fascination with the ideas of perfection, virtuosity and infallibility of iconic architecture. By demonstrating the vitality, fragility and vulnerable beauty of architecture as recounted and witnessed by people who actually live in, use or maintain the spaces, Bêka and Partners let the architecture talk to us, from an "inner" point of view, both personal and subjective.
The DVD-books will be on sale after the roundtable discussion; thereafter it will be available at the AA bookshop.
