BCN-BXL. CODERCH-DE KONINCK. BEYOND TIME.

Morrosko Vila-San-Juan

SPANISH PREMIÈRE

SYNOPSIS

Although they belong to different generations, Coderch and De Koninck were architects and designers who worked for the bourgeoisie of their time and created an aesthetic and an imaginary of consumer society and everyday life that has survived to the present day. De Koninck is considered the best Belgian architect of the interwar period, while Coderch emerged in post-war Spain as the architect of modernity. Both rationalists analysed and understood very well the society in which they lived and its needs: José Antonio Coderch in Barcelona and the Mediterranean coast and Louis Herman De Koninck in Brussels and its surroundings. Through various films and interviews with architects such as the Belgian Bruno Erpicum and the Spaniard Óscar Tusquets and owners of some of Coderch and De Koninck’s houses, we get to know their universes, their ways of understanding light, time and space.
