watch: Moriyama-San, Bêka & Lemoine
Filmmakers Louise Lemoine and Illa Bêka spend a week with Yasuo Moriyama, a reclusive figure obsessed with experimental film, noise music and reading in acrobatic positions. A man very much comfortable in his own company, his home, ‘Moriyama House,’ has been designed with all his eccentricities in mind. Now one of Tokyo’s most well-known residential projects, this incredible space created by Ryue Nishizawa of award-winning firm SANAA brings together ten separate box units each with a specific use, some intensely private, some disconcertingly public. This gentle film records a slow-paced life lived indoors that might spark a new appreciation of your own at-home habits and routines.
