In the frame of the Duos & Débats exhibition presented on the newly opened Plateforme de la Création Architecturale of the Paris Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine, 51N4E will be hosting a series of conversations. For each of them, guests will give a short introduction on a selection of projects, that will then give way to an open discussion between the office, the guests and the public.
This conversation will tackle the new practices revolving around the production of housing : how can public or private clients and architects find new ways of collaborating? How can architectural quality and program mixing create a long term added value and participate, beyond the edification of buildings, in the creation of actual living environments ?
A selection of French and Belgian projects will be presented, along with housing projects implemented in Zurich as a part of the Mehr als Wohnen program.
Speakers: 51N4E + Andreas Hofer, member of the board of directors of Mehr als Wohnen / Gricha Bourbouze, Bourbouze & Graindorge / Dominique Boudet / Jean Francois Drevon
