Online Lecture / Architecture Speaks: Bêka & Lemoine
Wednesday 10 November, 2021
1.15–2.30 pm (UTC+2)
The international lecture series on contemporary architecture continues online! Six professional in the field of architecture from various backgrounds are invited to share their thoughts and ideas on current trends in architecture.
”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.
Bêka & Lemoine
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 which can be defined, in reference to French writer Georges Perec, as an ”anthropology of the ordinary”.
Architecture Speaks! Is a lecture series curated by Associate Professor Jenni Reuter and organized by Aalto University Department of Architecture and Museum of Finnish Architecture. 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 importance of handicrafts has become prominent. We long for precise quality of work and tangible materials. Six professional in the field of architecture from various backgrounds are invited to share their thoughts and ideas on current trends in architecture.
