Koolhaas Houselife Poster

The Architecture Society is proud to present Ila Bêka and Louis Lemoine’s documentary Koolhaas Houselife.

The first project of the Living Architectures series, Koolhaas Houselife portrays one of the masterpieces of contemporary architecture. The film lets the viewer enter into the house’s daily intimacy through the stories and daily chores of Guadalupe Acedo, the housekeeper, and the other people who look after the building. Pungent, funny and touching.
