(Re)discover the film Mon Oncle (1958), one of the great masterpieces of the French director Jacques Tati. This film humorously questions post-war society’s relationship with modern architecture and design. It contrasts the traditional, informal and lively city with the suburban housing sectors that developed during this period in the suburbs of major French cities.
Modern architecture is personified by the Villa Arpel. This automated house with its clean lines became an icon of the architecture of the period without having existed outside of the film set and the exhibition spaces that recreated it, highlighting the influence that criticism can have on the discourse on architecture and the city.
