This exhibition presents the work of three figures of French architecture, each with its own work and distinct background. Three figures who have been awarded the National Grand Prix of Architecture: Frédéric Borel revealed by housing projects animating complex plots in Paris; Marc Barani who made his weapons on the edge of the Mediterranean in the wake of Le Corbusier; Ibos and Vitart distinguished by their subtle dialogue with heritage when, for example, the extension of the Museum of Fine Arts in Lille.
“Borel, Barani, Ibos & Vitart. A landscape of excellence”
22 May – 16 September, 2019
Citè de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine
1 Place du Trocadéro et du 11 Novembre, Paris
Three figures belonging to the same generation, but distinguished by the difference of their approach: sculptural and scripted for Borel, horizontal and territorial for Barani, geometic and settled for Ibos & Vitart.
Three figures whose work is deciphered here by three critics: Richard Scoffier for Frédéric Borel, Colin Lemoine for Marc Barani, Dominique Boudet for Jean Marc Ibos & Myrto Vitart. For this exhibition, a carte blanche was offered to the three architects, who surrounded themselves with an artistic team composed of graphic designers, model makers, videographers, filmmakers and photographers to stage their unique worlds.
