Festival des Architectures Vives 2016 : les lauréats

Under the sign of innovation, the eleventh edition of Lively Architecture Festival (FAV) was held from the 14 26 June, the Grande Motte Montpellier. With over 20 000 visitors, the 2016 edition of Lively Architecture Festival was a huge success through exceptional sites invested by ephemeral and unpublished works by architects, landscape architects and urban planners.

Initiated in 2006 by the CHAMP LIBRE association, the Festival des Architectures Vives focuses on highlighting the work of a younger generation of architects while unveiling unexpected urban territories. The FAV intends to initiate a global reflection on architecture and its development in an existing urban context, in the grip of many upheavals.

The FAV Montpellier projects


This year the prize of the public of Montpellier was awarded to the team of Maxime Derrouch, Typhaine Le Goff and Emeline Marty, for the installation "In n 'Over" and its whirlwind of white birds offering a moment of reverie and contemplation.


The jury prize was awarded to Mickael Martins Afonso and Caroline Escaffre Faure for their installation called "Head in the clouds", conducive to daydreaming.


The special mention was given to the Argentina team with Maria Victoria Cresta, Giovanna Giampetruzzi, Lucas Torres Aguero, Soledad Lanus and Ariel Marcelo Gurdo, for "Veinticuatro", a reinterpretation of the water fountain.
