You’ve admired their buildings, now go inside their homes. On October 1st, the Architecture and Design Film Festival will host the U.S. premiere of “Where Architects Live,” a fascinating documentary that offers an intimate look into private interiors—and the daily lives—of eight of the world’s most important architects, including Shigeru Ban, Mario Bellini, David Chipperfield, Zaha Hadid, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, Marcio Kogan, Daniel Libeskind and Bijoy Jain.
The film originally debuted during Milan’s 2014 design week
As one would expect, wild architectural gestures are juxtaposed against sleek, modern canvases in many of these abodes, but it’s the details that expose us to a whole other side these prolific minds. The film most notably takes us into the home of the late Dame Zaha Hadid, who speaks about her residence in Baghdad and how it informed her London home.
Following the first showing, New York Magazine Design Editor Wendy Goodman will lead a panel discussion about designing for oneself and the challenges and opportunities it affords. Panelists will include the film’s director Francesca Molteni, designer Amy Lau and landscape designer Piet Oudolf.
Don’t miss out on this fascinating film and the talk that will follow. You can also get a closer look at the spaces featured in our gallery below.
