This is a great white board animation of ‘The Powers Of Time”, a lecture given by Professor Philip Zimbardo, author of ‘The Time Paradox’.

One of the big mysteries of life…TIME. Where does it go…what does it mean…how is it spent…how does it affect our lives and our perspectives?
We all have different perspectives of time. – what is yours?

Watch it. A great way to spend some time.

Koolhaas Houselife is the first in a series of films called “Living Architectures”.  The goal of the series is to ‘demonstrate the vitality, fragility and vulnerability of architecture through the observation of daily life…”  

The films’ main character is a housekeeper – Guadalupe Acedo – throughout the film, she points out the “complex world of daily life”.  10 years ago, Rem Koolhaas created  one of the most amazing houses ever built: the Maison à Bordeaux. The engineering is incredible – moving walls, lifting bedrooms, platforms and automated windows, designed to give freedom to the owner, a wheelchair bound, car accident victim.  The film’s intent is to ‘de-idealize’ architecture, to make it seem less precious and more personal. 

Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine’s film sold out its 1st edition.  The 2nd edition DVD -book is now available.
