The Pavillon de l’Arsenal de París has invited several European agencies which question the way in which contemporary cities are being built and which are committed to participative multidisciplinary urban practices to participate in this exhibition. The aim is to explore the role of architecture in today’s changing society. The exhibition presents thirty micro-interventions or urban strategies produced by these different agencies, showing them in a range of formats including videos, photographs, plans, interviews and drawings all of which illustrate other ways of creating the city.
Among the participants are MUF architecture/art
which won the 2008 European Prize for Urban Public Space with its Barking Town Square project
in London and also the AAA Studio
, authors of the project “Passage 56 / espace culturel écologique”
which received a Special Mention in the 2010n European Prize for Urban Public Space.
