Forum d'Urbanisme et d'Architecture
Matière Grise, the exhibitionConsume
« more grey matter » to consume « less raw materials » is one of the
prize of this exhibition, which question the materials as a strategy in a
decisive moment when architecture aspirated to reinvent itself between
economical and environmental confines. Reuse regards raw materials are
not under our feet or in the other end of the world, but in our towns,
our buildings, our infrastructures. Then, the material is not a waste
anymore but a real capital that we have to increase the value and
preserve by giving to it a second life.
Materials / Reused / Architecture
This exhibition is the hypothesis that this new look on the material creates and will create a new approach of architecture and building. The ingenuity will not be only the one of the “white page” but the capacity and the opportunity of doing with what we have.
