LIVING ARCHITECTURES MARATHON, a tour from 27 June to 20 September 2013, will present “Living Architectures” in some of the main exhibition institutions in Italy. The series of five films by Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine recount in surprising ways the life of works of architecture designed by some of the most famous architects of our time: Rem Koolhaas, Richard Meier, Frank Gehry,Renzo Piano, and Herzog & De Meuron. Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine have just produced a publication in several volumes which includes all five films of the series “Living Architectures”, as well as considerable documentation on their production: this is an impressive work, which expresses with great strength and incisiveness the unusual and piercing point of view that the two filmmakers have reserved for famous architecture of our time. Each presentation will be based on a free screening of the series of films and will offer the public an opportunity to meet the filmmakers along with several other special guests.
