Life, Assembled70 minutes · Belgium · 2022
Architect and director Elodie Degavre looks back on a little-known chapter of Belgian Architectural history – the story of a post-modern enclave in an otherwise traditional Belgian countryside. It reflects a reevaluation of the way housing had historically been designed, an attempt at utopia. Archival footage places viewers in the life of a young Elodie, experiencing the reimagination of housing through the eyes of her architect neighbor. Along the way, we see rural houses with stark steel exteriors, learn of a building designed by medical students, and hear from legendary architects like Simone and Lucien Kroll.
