Festival des Architectures Vives - FAV 2014 à Montpellier

4 Rue Trésoriers de la Bourse, 34000 Montpellier, France, Montpellier, France
Festival des Architectures Vives presentation The Festival des Architectures Vives aims to raise public awareness of the wide range of architecture. It seeks not only to highlight the work of a young generation of architects, landscape architects and urban planners but also to make discover unexpected urban areas. Through two urban courses, one in the historical heart of Montpellier’s town and a second in La Grande Motte, the public can discover works of contemporary architecture in unique sites and sometimes unknown from people. In Montpellier, courtyards of private hostels, usually closed to the public, open their doors during the festival. In 2014, the Festival des Architectures Vives invested 12 courtyards in total with 11 installations + 1 pavilions. Many works allow interaction with visitors. All of them take possession of the sites during the festival only. Leaving no physical trace, the festival seeks to make an impression, to initiate a global reflection on architecture and its development in existing urban context and finally, to create a dialogue between contemporary works and heritage. Mediators are present on each site. These mediators are students at the School of Architecture of Montpellier and they endeavour to strengthen appreciation of the works of the visitors. The event is free, this reflects the desire of opening architecture to the greatest number. FAV is organized by Elodie Nourrigat and Jacques Brion, architects in Montpellier.
