Many works allow interaction with visitors. Leaving no physical trace, the festival seeks to make an impression, to initiate a global reflection on architecture and its development in an existing urban context and finally, to create a dialogue between contemporary works and heritage. Mediators are present on each site. These mediators are students at the School of Architecture of Montpellier and they endeavour to strengthen the appreciation of the works of the visitors. The event is free reflecting the desire of opening architecture to the greatest number.

About The Festival des Architectures Vives

The Festival des Architectures Vives is a public architectural exhibition. Visitors can discover or rediscover the historical landmarks of the city of Montpellier since 2006. The event invites visitors to interact with the rich heritage by offering installations scattered around the city. In Montpellier, it takes place in the historic town and offers a path connecting mansions and courtyards, mostly private, that are usually not accessible to visitors. The FAV is organized by Elodie Nourrigat and Jacques Brion, architects in Montpellier.
