The twelfth Festival des Architectures Vives (FAV) has opened the various spaces in the town centres of Montpellier and La Grand Motte showcasing the temporary works of eleven groups of young designers.
The monuments in Domaine d’O in Montpeiller include Jean-Claude Carrière Theatre designed by A+Architecture. Built in a 23 hectare park, the project is intended to be a visual landmark, a work of contemporary architecture inspired by Harlequin’s mask. Built entirely out of recyclable materials of certified origin, it is an outstanding example of a sustainable building.
A team consisting of BIG + A+Architecture + Egis + Base + L'Echo + Celsius Environnement + CCVH has won the international design competition for the new Museum of the Human Body (Cité du Corps Humain) in Montpellier, France.
