As the first project in the “Living Architectures” series, the film Koolhaas Houselife portrays one of the masterpieces of contemporary architecture. The film lets the viewer enter the intimacy of the house’s everyday life, through the stories and daily chores performed by the housekeeper, Guadalupe Acedo, and the other people who also look after the building. Poignant, funny and touching.

The fifth project in the “Living Architectures” series, Inside Piano is composed of three films about three symbolic buildings in the career of Renzo Piano. A visit undertaken during the course of the construction of the prototype for the Centre Pompidou. An immersion in the soundproof world of a submarine floating in the depths of the Parisian underground. A journey aboard the luminous magic carpet of a highly sophisticated architectural machine. A peculiar and ironic point of view, filled with humour.

Co-production: Barbican Centre, United Kingdom

At the specific request of the Art Gallery of the Barbican Centre, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine, internationally known for their unique approach to architecture, immersed themselves for a whole month in the life of one of the most important European art centres and one of the most representative achievements of Brutalist architecture. Built as a personal diary, the film recounts on a daily basis everything that the directors had discovered during their urban trip from the top floors of the towers to the underground levels of the art centre. Through an impressive gallery of portraits, the film draws an intimate human map of the place, bringing this hostile district to life and questioning the durability of this utopia of the 1950s.

25 BIS (2014), by ILA BÊKA and LOUISE LEMOINE (46 mins.)

Commissioned by Fondazione Prada and OMA for the exhibition “Auguste Perret, Huit Chefs d’œuvre !/? – Architectures du béton armé” at the Palais d’Iéna, in 2014, this film is an intimate portrait of a masterpiece from the beginning of Auguste Perret’s career: the building located at 25 Bis, Rue Franklin in Paris. “25 Bis” talks to us from a different point of view, searching for the intangible and subjective element of the building’s history: the depth of the human imprint. Naked from the permanence here of human existence, the building appears as a sedimentation of life stories where each layer has left traces of its passage through this place. From the intimate nature of these stories, the film draws this fragile and undefined essence that could be called “the place’s soul”.

LA MADDALENA (2014), by ILA BÊKA and LOUISE LEMOINE (12 mins.)

Directors: Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine
Original Language: Italian
Sub-titles: English
Production: Bêka & Partners, France.

The island of La Maddalena was to have been the venue for the meeting of the G8 summit in July 2009, but on 23 April of that same year, the Italian Prime Minister at that time, Silvio Berlusconi, decided to move the event to the city of L’Aquila, which had just been destroyed by an earthquake. The brand new complex of the island’s former military arsenal, planned by Stefano Boeri to host the event, was slowly abandoned. A judicial inquiry followed, which revealed illegal management practices involving corruption, fraud against the State and environmental pollution. The site, which was supposed to be reclaimed, is still polluted today and is therefore completely closed off. The film is conceived as an introspective journey of the architect Stefano Boeri walking through these abandoned spaces.

Conceived as a personal video diary, The Infinite Happiness is an architectural experience. The film takes us to the heart of one of the contemporary housing developments considered to be a new model of success. Inhabiting the giant “8 House” built by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels in the suburbs of Copenhagen, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine recount their subjective experience of living inside this experiment of a vertical village, chosen in 2011 as the “world’s best residential building”. Just as in a Lego game, the film builds up a collection of life stories, all interconnected by their personal relationship with the building. The film draws the lines of a human map which enables the viewer to discover the building through an inner and intimate point of view and questions the architecture's ability to create collective happiness, showing the surprising results of this new type of social model of the twenty-first century.

The home-sharing platforms have drastically changed Mark's life. From a cosy and normal family life, this young man has entered into the vortex of a rather unusual and adventurous life experience. From now on, Mark will make his living by renting beautiful flats, while himself residing exclusively in hotel rooms, changing address every day.
Unveiling his rare strategies of success, selling tailor-made dreams for guests looking for a “true Scandinavian experience”, Mark pushes the home-sharing system to its extreme. Thanks to this experience, he has found a new form of freedom, combining a high level of material detachment with a maximum of mobility.

“Voyage autour de la Lune” is an urban diary, a personal journey which draws the lines of an emotional and psychological map of the city of Bordeaux along its renewed river banks, once called the “Moon Harbour” because of the large curve with which the Garonne river embraces the city.
Through this week-long journey from one side to the other of the river banks, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine tell us about the identity of a public space which has deeply changed in the collective mind of the city.
In an intimist cinematic language, the film drives us along the huge tumultuous river in its flows and tides, and drifts into the intimate turmoils of all the people met on site during the journey. A rare example of a film in which a city is portrayed through a collection of personal stories.
