Événement : Materials & Light

For the 5th consecutive year, the A magazine invites you to the Materials & Light exhibition, an unmissable event dedicated to innovative solutions for architecture. Organized at the Carreau du Temple 24 and 25 April in partnership with Muuuz, the event brings together about sixty exhibitors and offers a series of conferences in a unique scenography designed by Violette Cros.

Taking more and more space, Materials & Light brings together more 2 500 visitors within the Carreau du Temple (3e arrondissement) and welcomes 60 exhibitors - 20 more than the previous edition - on almost 2 000 square meters. Professionals from the world of architecture will be able to discover four poles that meet their expectations in terms of materials and lighting: "Façade", "Second Work", "Lighting" and "Public Space", all highlighted by a scenography imagined around steel exhibition modules, positioned in concentric arches, in reference to the iconic architecture of Carreau du Temple.

In parallel with the courses offered by the show, festive events - brunches, private party, snacks, cocktails and awards - and conferences will punctuate the event during the two days. One of them, moderated by the editorial staff of Muuuz, will question the role of paper in architecture and design, involving the teams of Processes Chénel as well as Soline D'Aboville (scenographer) and Patrick Nadeau (designer) .
