Exhibition: Habiter le campement

If you liked the exhibition consecrated to architect Yona Friedman—which is being held until next November, 7th at the Cité de l’Architecture—you will surely like the retrospective ‘Habiter le campement’. Until the end of August, the museum focuses a reflection on housing and encampment—being based on economic, political or environmental contexts at the same time which have pushed thousands of people to live on a long-term basis in camps—transformed into cities for the occasion. Six categories or typologies of encampments have been drawn up—the nomads, the travellers, the unfortunates, the exiles, the conquerors and the protesters. All have then been illustrated by photographic reports in which we discover as believers on pilgrimage as stallholders, as refugees as tourists, soldiers and astronauts.

Exhibition « Habiter le campement. Architectures de nomades, de voyageurs, d’infortunés, d’exilés, de conquérants et de contestataires », from April 13th to August 29th, 2016.
Open every day except on Tuesday, from 11am to 7pm.
