In the wake of a rising global interest for resilient cities and water management issues related to human habitat, and building on “Jean Prouvé, the better days” exhibition, atelier LUMA initiates a masterclass on floodproof and demountable architecture and self construction.
The masterclass will investigate this global concern on a local level in a 6-day Masterclass directed by nigerian architect Kunlé Adeyemi. Under his supervision, 40 international architecture students will work at Parc des Ateliers and on-site in the region on design solutions to inhabit flood-prone areas and adaptability to flood risks.
The Masterclass outcomes will be presented in an exhibition during LUMA days 2018 focused on Hospitality. Those outcomes will be assessed by the best international water and territory specialists and architects of innovative constructions together with local experts in the kick-off public conference of LUMA days.
