Life, Assembled An Architectural Journey

a documentary by Élodie Degavre, 75', 2022


A city of steel that's causing a lot of talk in the neighborhood. Japanese houses designed by their future buyers. A building site in kit form entrusted to students. In Charleroi, Liège and Brussels, three architects and a handful of utopian inhabitants will put their housing ideals into practice. Just out of May 68, they want to demonstrate the revolutionary potential of industrialized architecture.

A human and architectural adventure that has been driving them for more than 40 years... What remains today of their houses of tomorrow ?
