Beka & Lemoine’s tale of resistance in the form of architecture
A podcast of the architect’s keynote at the international WAF festival
The Architecture of Emergency Summit
- Updated Inspiration
A documentary film by architectural artists and filmmakers Beka & Lemoine tells a story of perseverance and hope through the work of Keisuke Oka, who expresses his resistance to the infernal machinery of the Tokyo metropolis in the form of a house. Trained in butoh dance, an avantgarde choreographic movement born in Japan in the 1960s, Oka makes architecture a performance, one that reflects his own struggles as an architect. His ongoing improvisation has garnered recognition from cultural figures in Japan who commend his rebellious and unconventional approach to building.
