This year, La Galerie d’Architecture is celebrating its 15th anniversary, and it wants to share this event with all architects, landscape architects, designers and photographers, inviting them to visit the exhibition “15 ans déjà!”, which no doubt will be a important milestone for the gallery.
To celebrate these 15 years, the gallery is organizing an exhibition from March 24 to April 9, tracing its activity since its inception. The gallery has invited each agency to present an original document, «oeuvres uniques», representative of their work, their thoughts and research.
The idea of this event, beyond the fact of celebrating its 15th anniversary, is to show architectural representations in the form of “unique works”, which may be the subject of a publication on the theme of architecture and its representation. These documents will join the collection of La Galerie d’Architecture, initiated with the drawings of Alvaro Siza, Aldo Rossi, Frédéric Borel and the models of Tank and Camilo Rebelo, among others.
La Galerie d’Architecture is an exhibition space dedicated to contemporary architecture and related fields as urban thought, design and art. Located in the Marais district, the gallery offers its many visitors a living space with differents atmospheres according to the rhythm of various exhibitions. Since its inauguration in 1999, the gallery supports and disseminates current architectural design through its exhibitions, alternating the production of younger and emerging architects, landscape planners or designers, with other consolidated figures of the international scene.
The exhibitions at the gallery help promote the work of architects through communication actions and relations with the press and with a network of galleries and important cultural institutions.By setting constant relationship between architecture and other arts such as photography, film and video, the gallery offers visitors a new perspective on architecture. This interdisciplinary and modern approach allows for a wider appreciation by the public, and strengthens the gallery as a significant researcher on current architectural production. The library of the La Galerie d’Architecture also offers a selection of specialized works in architecture, art and design and a wide selection of French and foreign architectural journals.
