Koolhaas Houselife is a film on one of the masterpieces of contemporary architecture of recent years: The House in Bordeaux designed in 1998 by Rem Koolhaas (OMA).
Unlike most movies about architecture, this feature focuses in less on explaning the building, its structure and its virtuosity than on letting the viewer enter into the invisible bubble of the daily intimacy of an architectural icon.
This experiment present a new way of looking at architecture and broadens the fields of it representation.
Like any house, the House in Bordeaux is a place of plurality with all its chaos, its wear and tear, and its changes. The work of Ila Beka and Louise Lemoine offers us a portrait of the real and changing vitality of one of those monuments we believe are inmortal. This is realized with trough the stories and daily chores of Guadalupe Acedo, the home's caretaker and housekeeper, and the other people who look after the building.
Following and interacting with Guadalupe, blooms an unusual and unpredictible look at the spaces and structure of the building.
