Exhibition: Une architecture de l’engagement, l’AUA (1960-1985)
The Cité de l’Architecture located nearby the Green Hotels Paris takes interest in the Atelier d’urbanisme et d’architecture, the AUA (the Atelier in the Architecture and Urbanism Workshop), in its new exhibition. Renowned for its multidisciplinary approach, this workshop was the first to gather architects, urbanists, decorators, engineers, but also sociologists. All this talents met around a project among which: Jean Tribel, Jacques Allégret, Michel Corajoud and Borja Huidobro. “Une achitecture de l’engagement” (“An architecture of commitment”) exhibition shows each member of AUA and dwells on their paths, from 1960 to 1985, and after.

For this occasion, the public will discover mock-ups, photographs, films, drawings and publication works.
