Build Somewhere Else: TYIN + Anna Heringer

After Rudy Ricciotti, Patrick Bouchain, Lacaton and Vassal, Luca Merlini and Lefèvre and Aubert, the villa Noailles pursues its exploration of universe of committed architects. From February 14th till March 28th, 2010, will be presented the projects and the realizations of two teams of architects: the TYIN association (see their projects in ArchDaily here) created by two young Norwegian architects, Andreas Grøntvedt Gjertsen and Yashar Hanstad, and those of German architect Anna Heringer (see her project in ArchDaily here).

“Build Somewhere Else”, because this exhibition shows projects conceived by people “here”, in Europe, for people “over there”, in Africa or in Asia. Over there, where the term «shelter» takes back its first sense: In Africa and in Asia, with the students Norwegian architects of TYIN, who created a humanitarian organization to build houses of orphan teenagers, libraries of village and public baths, with the local population and within environmental protection conditions. In Africa and in Bengladesh, with a young German architect, who has reinterpreted the ancients constructiv systems.

The exhibition will take place at the Villa Noailles, Hyeres, .
