Living Le Corbusier

 

A selection of films produced between 1966 and 2019 by French, German, Italian, Swiss and filmmakers, dedicated to the work of the renowned Swiss architect.

 

September 19, 2020 - January 24, 2021

Gallery 2 Teatro dell'architettura Mendrisio

 

Programme organized by the Accademia di architettura - USI, in partnership with Milano Design Film Festival.

 

The programme is intended as a chance to explore some of Le Corbusier's iconic works, from Villa Savoye to the Unité d'Habitation in Marseille, from the foundation of the city of Chandigarh to the Firminy-Vert district and to the famous LC4 chaise longue. Thanks to the encounter between the disciplines of filmmaking and architecture, in which film practice acts as a tool for condensing space and time into a visual fiction that conveys the emotional qualities of sites in all their material and non-material components, the six films are characterised by different approaches, from the more traditional documentary-oriented one to those with a "fiction" intention, to the video art experiment by Heinz Emigholz, an important filmmaker who was for some years the main reference for the "Filming Architecture" workshop of the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio.
