Film screening / Architecture Koolhaas Houselife

What is architecture?
© Beka Lemoine

First project of the Living Architectures series, Koolhaas Houselife portrays one of the masterpieces of contemporary architecture. The film peeks into the house’s intimacy through the stories and daily chores of Guadalupe Acedo, the housekeeper, and the other people who look after the building. What happens to a house designed by a starchitect”? How is it maintained, how does it age? What problems could there be? Could there be any problems? Pungent, funny and touching.

KOOLHAAS HOUSELIFE — Bêka & Lemoine’s film on

Wat ass Architektur? − What is architecture?

What is architecture? is a series of events full of discoveries around – as you might have guessed – architecture. 

We are all, in one way or the other, confronted with architecture: We live in apartments and houses, we work in various office buildings, we spend our free time in theatres, swimming pools, restaurants and public spaces. But how much do we really know about the processes of creation and construction of the architectural landscapes that surround us?

What is architecture? has been initiated to raise questions on various topics related to architecture, while presenting their relevance in a national and international context. At every What is architecture? evening you can expect a movie preceded and followed by unreleased film footage of WAA? Project, highlighting the link between the projected film and Luxembourg.
