ADFF Toronto: Life, Assembled

Join us at ADFF Toronto for the Canadian Premiere of Life, Assembled.


Film Basics

70 mins | Belgium | 2022
Director: Elodie Degavre

Architect and director Elodie Degavre looks back on a little-known chapter of Belgian Architectural history – the story of a post-modern enclave in an otherwise traditional Belgian countryside. It reflects a reevaluation of the way housing had historically been designed, an attempt at utopia. Archival footage places viewers in the life of a young Elodie, experiencing the reimagination of housing through the eyes of her architect neighbor. Along the way, we see rural houses with stark steel exteriors, learn of a building designed by medical students, and hear from legendary architects like Simone and Lucien Kroll.


About the Architecture and Design Film Festival

The Architecture and Design Film Festival (ADFF)—North America’s largest film festival dedicated to architecture and design—is coming back to Toronto for another year of great films and insightful discussions! From November 1-4, catch one of their amazing lineup of 20 films, from all over the world. Looking for the full list of films showcased at this year’s ADFF: Toronto? See the complete programme on the festival’s website!

The TSA is proud to once again be partnering with ADFF: Toronto to bring a series of panel discussions and post-screening Q&As that complement this year’s film roster. These panels bring together architects, film-makers, and subject matter experts to further explore the themes of each film and bring them back to our local context here in Toronto.
