5th Festival of Lively Architectures in Montpellier

5th Festival of Lively Architectures in Montpellier

Since 2006, The Festival des Architectures Vives tries to make people aware to architecture giving them tools to understand it by allowing people who live in town to meet people who draw the town.

This Festival offers young architects to propose, think, investigate and experiment new fields of architectural design in relation with the classic town. The courtyards of private mansion are seen with new eyes and it allows to have a global though about architecture in a urban context.

The Festival allows walking in the centre of the city and take time to discover and re-discover it. The courtyards of private houses are thus connected between them with their particular creation by architects coming from all part of the world.

For this 5th edition, 170 teams composed of architects from all over the world (60% where teams from abroad : Spain, Germany, Italy, United States, Chile, Japan, Canada, Brazil, India…) have registered their submission in order to take part in the FAV. For more information, click here.
