The winning projects of the third edition of FAIRE will be announced on Wednesday, July 3, 2019. FAIRE is France’s 1st ever accelerator of innovative architectural and urban development projects; it was created by the Pavillon de l’Arsenal in conjunction with the City of Paris, and with the support of Caisse des Dépôts and the automotive manufacturer MINI.+
Some sixty experts met to screen the 218 projects that were initially submitted, based on which the jury then selected 11 projects that explore new ways of addressing the challenges that the metropolis of Paris faces.
The winning projects range from new post-concrete materials to 3-D soil printing systems for Grand Paris, the study of residences for active senior citizens, a social re-integration project through the re-use of materials, urban furniture that reduces noise pollution, a technique for replenishing soil through the reuse of asphalt aggregate, a ventilation system for Parisian courtyards, a project to transform mycelium into a construction material, an air fountain, and research into shared buildings.
Jean-Louis Missika, Mayoral Deputy of the City of Paris responsible for urban planning, architecture, Grand Paris, and economic and esthetic development.
