The buildings selected by Jean-Pierre Blanc, director of Villa Noailles, and Florence Sarano, architect and associate commissioner, for the exhibition "9 Architectes / 9 propositions pour habiter" (9 architects / 9 proposals for dwelling) come from 9 different European nations.

The projects are by architects who have never exhibited their work in France before, except for Frenchman Rudy Ricciotti.
The exhibition will therefore offer an opportunity to discover and understand the complex process underlying an 'architectural project: the media and tools used and the different stages in the project, as well as the architects? personal universe.

Visitors will be able to construct their own exhibition route through the villa. Each part represents a stage in the process of design, and direct comparison helps visitors understand the modus operandi of the 9 architectural practices invited to participate: Boyd Cody Architects (Ireland), Bassam El Okeily (Belgium), SeARCH & CMA (the Netherlands), Fran Silvestre Arquitectos (Spain), Johannes Norlander Arkitektur (Sweden), Bassicarella Architectes (Switzerland), Spedstudio (Italy), Aires Mateus Architects (Portugal), Rudy Ricciotti Architecte(France).
