Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine, authors of the film series Living Architectures, will give a talk on Thursday, April 10 at 19.00 in the Walk-in Cinema at SALT Beyoğlu.




Living Architectures is a series of films that seeks to develop a way of looking at architecture which turns away from the current trend of idealizing the representation of our architectural heritage. Through these films, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine put into question our fascination with the image of architecture, which shrouds buildings with preconceived ideas of perfection, virtuosity and infallibility, in order to demonstrate the vitality, fragility and vulnerable beauty of architecture as recounted and witnessed by people who actually live in, use or maintain the spaces they have selected. Thus, their intention is to talk about architecture, or rather to let architecture talk to us, from an “inner” point of view, both personal and subjective.

Unlike most films about architecture, Living Architectures focuses less on explaining the buildings, their structures and technical details, than on letting the viewer enter into the invisible bubble of the daily intimacy of some icons of contemporary architecture.


Ila Bêka is an Italian artist and filmmaker who lives and works in Paris. He trained as an architect with a degree from the IUAV of Venice and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paris-Belleville.

Louis Lemoine is a French filmmaker who lives and works in France. She graduated in cinema and philosophy from the Sorbonne, Paris.
