6th Edition of Lively Architecture in Montpellier
From 15th to 19th June 2011 Lively Architectures to discover
Since 2006, The Festival des Architectures Vives tries to make people aware to architecture giving them tools to understand it by allowing people who live in town to meet people who draw the town.
This Festival offers young architects to propose, think, investigate and experiment new fields of architectural design in relation with the classic town. The courtyards of private mansion are seen with new eyes and it allows having a global though about architecture in an urban context. It also allows the creation of an intimate relation between a contemporary architecture and a site with strong patrimonial character. Montpellier City and the Languedoc Roussillon have an architectural heritage very rich people are curious about. From this curiosity dialogue can start.
Thus, this Festival with those places open (usually they are closed) and their new views allowed by young architects is possible thanks the open-minded of the inhabitants and owners of those wonderful places.
The Festival allows walking in the centre of the city and take time to discover and rediscover it. The courtyards of private houses are thus connected between them with their particular creation by architects coming from all part of the world.
This year, always in a will to register short-lived contemporary interventions in a patrimonial frame a welcome and information pavillon will take place during the Festival of the Lively Architectures in Montpellier. This Pavillon has for vocation to inform the visitors little before the Festival and accompany them during its progress. The welcome pavillon of the Festival of the Lively Architectures is a shop window of the Festival in Montpellier, a place of meeting, piece of information where is presented the information on the Festival. He can also become the point of departure of the visits and appears as a complementary installation to be discovered. Pavillon wishes by its constitution to show the possibility of realizing contemporary architecture with materials registered within the framework of a recycling. Come to the FAV Pavillon from 7th to 19th June 2011 from 9 am to 7 pm!
