The House in Bordeaux designed in 1998 by Rem Koolhaas. Unlike most movies about architecture, this feature focuses less on explaining the building, its structure and its virtuosity than on letting the viewer enter into the invisible bubble of the daily intimacy of an architectural icon. This experiment presents a new way of looking at architecture and broadens the field of its representation. Like any house, the House in Bordeaux is a place of plurality with all its chaos, its wear and tear, and its changes. The directors offer us a portrait of the real and changing vitality of one of those monuments that we believe are immortal. This is realized through the stories and daily chores of Guadalupe Acedo, the home’s caretaker and housekeeper, and the other people who look after the building. Following and interacting with Guadalupe, blooms an unusual and unpredictable look at the spaces and structure of the building. (source: koolhaashouselife.com)
