Villa Empain was a passion, a vision, a plan, a home, an artwork. It is a heartfelt dream that was abandoned. Villa Empain, today, looks like it did in the 1930s, but it has turned into another entity held by the same fundament. The film compares the life of Louis Empain and his creation. It bears witness to how a fixed idea, an architect’s dream, disappears in favour of a living architecture.
