Boldness and Experimentation: Architecture Is Still a Fight

Odile Decq | PLANE—SITE

Curated and produced by PLANE—SITE, this video series features interviews with prominent architects reflecting on the topics of TIME SPACE EXISTENCE.

French architect Odile Decq is an unmistakable icon of architecture and contemporary design. Decq is known for her use of color, which she applies to her own person as well as her built works, expressing an integration of art and life. She approaches architecture with an eye towards structural innovation, always with unwavering conviction. In this new short film from the Time Space Existence series, Decq places her practice into the context of the revolutionary spirit of the 1960s, talks about cultivating a design approach while waiting for the critical acclaim awarded to male designers, and advocates for boldness and personality from today’s generation of emerging architects.


Produced by PLANE—SITE, the film has been commissioned by the GAA Foundation and funded by the ECC on the occasion of the Time Space Existence biennial exhibition in Venice.
