Today, new housing architectures is being invented in Paris. These fair collective buildings delivered or still in projects explore new urban situations and question the traditional forms of housing or their manufacture. Some are experimenting with carbon-free construction strategies, others anticipate tomorrow’s lifestyles or question the very notion of ownership.
“Habiter Mieux Habiter Plus”
April 5 – September 2, 2018
Pavillon de l’Arsenal
21 Boulevard Morland, Paris
The exhibition Habiter Mieux Habiter Plus wishes to bring these issues to the fore by presenting models, films, interviews, prototypes, perspectives and plans of some 60 architectures classified according to the questions they raise. Where to build the Paris housing of tomorrow? Barracks, convents, garages, offices, is the building of the future already there? Can we still invent new land? How to build better to consume less?
Terraces, balconies, loggias can we offer more outdoor spaces and stay sober? Can the apartment evolve with the rhythms of life? And, if solidarity programs prefigured housing of the future? Colocation, cohabitation, co-ownership what will the apartment look like at the time of the sharing economy?
