Architecture Speaks lecture: Bêka & Lemoine
Wed 10 November from 13.15 to 14.30
Museum of Finnish Architecture and Aalto University Department of Architecture
Video-artists, filmmakers, producers and publishers, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine have been working together for the past 15 years mainly focusing their research on experimenting new narrative and cinematographic forms in relation to contemporary architecture and urban environment. Focusing their interest mainly on how the built environment shapes and influences our daily life, they have developed a very unique and personal approach.
“In their films, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine show architecture from the user’s perspective. This aspect is most often missing from architectural publications, although architecture comes to life only when in use”, states Jenni Reuter, curator of the lecture series.
Architecture Speaks is an international lecture series curated by Professor Jenni Reuter and organised jointly by Aalto University Department of Architecture and the Museum of Finnish Architecture. This year’s lectures reflect on how during the pandemic, our way of life has slowed down, and we have stopped to think about the impact that spaces have on their users and the patina of living brought to the spaces by the users.
The lecture is free of charge for everyone. Pre-registration is required. More information about the event through this link (opens in a new tab).
