Exhibition: Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The Piano Method

From November 11th, 2015, to February 29th, 2016, the Cité de l’architecture & du patrimoine in Paris (FR) presents Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The Piano Method, an exhibition dedicated to the work of the Italian architect Renzo Piano.

The exhibition intends to reflect the collective approach of the architectural firm Renzo Piano Building Workshop, by showing the collaborative and experimental dimension of its projects, in term of technical innovation and design solutions on the urban scale. Exploiting the potential of different materials by pushing the limits of construction techniques is the idea.

Tables display the design process of 15 selected projects, including those built in France: the iconic Centre Pompidou, the Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé Foundation and the future Paris Law Court. The exhibition’s thematic itinerary is built around six families of projects mainly in Europe and the United States, with a special focus on a humanitarian project in Africa.
