MAXXI programme curated by Emilia Giorgi
with the contribution of Image
In an Italian preview at MAXXI the programme Living Architectures Marathon presents the complete series of films Living Architectures by Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine. A monumental work expressing with great power and incisiveness the unusual and penetrating point of view which the two artists have reserved for some of the celebrated architecture of our time.
Five evening events discussing and introducing the public to the works of some of the leading figures in contemporary architecture:Rem Koolhaas, Richard Meier, Frank Gehry, Renzo Piano, Herzog & De Meuron.
Wednesday 18 September, 20.00
Film screening. Introduced by Marco Brizzi
This film accompanies us on an exploration of three symbolic examples of Renzo Piano’s architecture. It begins with a visit to the B&B Italia headquarters at Novedrate (CO), a prototype of the Centre Pompidou, and continues with Espace de projection at IRCAM, an immersion into the sound-proofed world of a submarine imagination fluctuating in the depths of subterranean Paris. It concludes with a trip aboard the luminous magic carpet of a sophisticated architectural machine: the Beyeler Foundation at Riehen in Switzerland. A caustic and original view of the work of the great Genoan architect.
The event is part of YAP MAXXI 2013 – Summer Programme
