    Koolhaus Houselife

    This witty, poignant and insightful film documents the surreal life of Bordeaux House, an architectural masterpiece in Bordeaux, France designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, OMA. The film lets the viewer enter into the house's daily life through the stories and chores of housekeeper Guadalupe Acevedo, and the other people who look after the building.

    “Heartfelt, thought-provoking and hilariously funny”
    New York Times

    "Koolhaas Houselife," is a small, smart, gently ironic, thoroughly delightful film that offers an affectionate but unflinching look at the everyday life of a contemporary architectural masterpiece—or what happens to a celebrated building after the photographers are gone.
    – Ada Louise Huxtable, The Wall Street Journal
