Under the thematic “Beauty”, 10 teams and one university invited, the Cooper Union, Institute for Sustainable Design, New York City, will realize an installation in the historical center of Montpellier.
Each installation created by an architect team allows highlighting the work of a younger generation which is inventing, experimenting and exploring new environmental designs. The festival offers them the opportunity to realize an installation in the heart of the prestigious and remarkable courses and mansions opened for the event. Each one opens a dialogue between heritage and contemporary architecture installations.
