Gilbert1 – To Build A Home Part 1

To Build A Home is a solo project presented by Gilbert1 and run in an abandonned place, a house on the edge of the forest, which was a meeting room and a room for parties of a sanatorium, designed by modernist architect André Lurçat in the 60’s. The project is focused on the building of a home, metaphor of the place full of our own story, in which we can recharge, but in which we can not remain forever, since man is not immortal, he is forced to abandon his own creation that will survive him. Only time and nature retain control Original music ‘To buid a home’ by The Cinematic Orchestra Additional pictures by Sylvain Raybaud.
