Living Architecures: Inside Renzo Piano

2010, 50 mins, colour, French film with Hungarian subtitles
D: Ila Beka, Louise Lemoine

?Living Architectures? is a series of films that seeks to develop a way of looking at architecture which turns away from the current trend of idealizing the representation of our architectural heritage. The cult of perfect, disembodied forms entirely devoid of people inevitably leads to a break-up between architecture and living space. Through these films, Ila B?ka and Louise Lemoine put into question the fascination with the picture, which covers up the buildings with preconceived ideas of perfection, virtuosity and infallibility, in order to demonstrate the vitality, fragility and vulnerable beauty of architecture as recounted and witnessed by people who actually live in, use or maintain the spaces they have selected.

 This films allows us to rediscover a little known building of Renzo Piano which is actually the experimentation field in which the architect has developed many elements he used a year after for the famous Centre Pompidou in Paris. Following the daily paths of a series of employees of the B&B design firm, we are welcomed to an architectural visit from the underground to the roof.
