This award-winning short film follows a day in the life of ‘Il Girasole’, or ‘The Sunflower’, the rotating modernist house built in 1935 into a hillside of the Po Valley in northern Italy. The house, designed by architects Angelo Invernizzi and Ettore Fagiuoli, has a motor that turns it 360 degrees on its own axis, following the course of the sun. This atmospheric film brings to life the imaginative and poetic vision of living in an avantgarde dream – a theme more recently picked up in ‘Koolhaas HouseLife’.
