Research Lab on Urban Landscapes and Architecture



The Rem Koolhaas house in France. A documentary film(houselife) by Louise Lemoine and Ila Beka about the daily antics of the housekeeper Guadalupe Acedo through The House in Bordeaux(1998). Just as interesting is the special features that hosts an interview with Koolhaas watching the movie. He speaks of platonics of architecture and of cleaning and also of architecture as hypothesis. This looks at an idea of architects as scientists. Architectural projects as propostitions and hypothesis that need an analysis with the final project as the solution. What is missing is the resolution. Too often of times do architectural projects get built and are left to their own devices to survive in the world.
