Rehab (from rehab)

86 minutes · France, Italy · 2023

Renowned directors Louise Lemoine and Ila Beka are back with another incredible story to tell. Through a series of vignettes of patients going through physical rehabilitation at Swiss Architects Herzog & De Meuron’s REHAB center in Basel, Switzerland. Rehab (from rehab) demonstrates how a building itself can contribute to patients’ recovery stories. From the start, the architects did not intend for REHAB to look or feel like a hospital. The resulting space is multifunctional, easy to use, and beautiful. By zooming in on this incredible project, Lemione and Beka show us how great architecture enriches the lives and work of the people within.
