The talk is available to watch on our Youtube Channel:

Through a series of film excerpts, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine will present their evolving cinematographic research, from their first well-known films revealing the daily intimacy within contemporary iconic buildings to their ongoing film series « Homo Urbanus » observing the cultural variations towards our essential needs, behaviors and habits in relation to urban space. Talking about their unique and radical position against the main strategies of representation in architecture they will explain their working methodology as filmmakers and independent producers.

The module Emerging Fields in Architecture imparts current knowledge from new research fields in architectural and engineering disciplines, with the aim of dealing with current and future design challenges in a broader social context in an interdisciplinary and fundamental way. The lectures impart knowledge about different and interdisciplinary approaches to design, current developments and results of material and construction research, about planning and building under/in extreme conditions as well as about structures that change or develop due to changing parameters.

In this context, strategies for design (from the initial idea to implementation) are questioned in an interdisciplinary discourse, and the question of how the path from idea to realisation can be shaped and to what extent it is possible to be systematically creative is explored. In the practical part, an independent cross-thematic examination is to be carried out.
