“Extension surélévation”

Architecture exhibition

“This exhibition was designed by the C.A.U.E. de la Sarthe as part of the second edition of its “Petites machines à habiter” festival devoted to small-scale architecture. It is the result of an architectural design competition open to students, architects and designers. It’s a stylistic exercise in imagining the extension or elevation of a town house, reconciling a heritage element with a contemporary-style ‘graft’. Stimulating creativity, enriching architecture, renewing the city and the old town centre, reusing and adapting to new lifestyles and ways of living – these are the objectives of the projects presented in this exhibition…”

“Echoing the theme Bifurcations of the XIIth Saint-Étienne International Design Biennial, the Site Le Corbusier is offering an exhibition in the lower parts of Saint-Pierre Church, scenographed by Döppel Studio and entitled Le Champ des possibles, micro-architectures à expérimenter.

An experiential approach to minimal housing and living together based around Le Corbusier’s Cabanon and its reinterpretation; an invitation to discover a “utopian architecture” occupying the cereal-growing land at the end of the summer”.

Architectures en boîte

Family workshop – carte blanche with illustrator Didier Cornille

A festive weekend to meet and have fun with Didier Cornille, designer and author-illustrator who loves playing with architecture!As part of the Architectures en boite exhibition-workshop, a new event is being organised for children and families. The programme for this carte blanche event includes a workshop and a chat with Didier Cornille, where you can discover new construction games in an offbeat and sensitive way.Using strips of coloured paper, the artist invites you to create elementary and expressive volumes. Bent, corrugated, assembled and glued, the paper becomes architecture. Over the course of the weekend, some will build, while others will draw, colour and decorate to create a small settlement that will grow into a large one.
