Proximity, care, nature, energy, materiality, security, mobility, stock, and flux. The fourth edition of FAIRE’s call for projects invites architects, designers, landscape architects, and urban planners to explore the new challenges that Grand Paris now faces.+

The pandemic has rendered certain urban models obsolete almost overnight, because of the pressure they put on the natural environment and the inequalities or crowding that they generate. It has also exposed the new expectations that residents of the metropolis have for alternative ways of living, moving about, eating, and working, which are very often based on the sharing, transformation, or mutualization of natural goods, be they tangible or intangible. These findings and aspirations are opening up new fields of study for those who design the city, where the primary concerns for solidarity and the climate emergency have to be addressed in conjunction with the challenges of proximity, care, nature, energy, materiality, security, mobility, stock, and flux, among others. 

As a pioneer in urban research that sponsors projects and a laboratory for innovative practices, FAIRE invites established and emerging professionals, as well as students at architecture and design schools, to explore this current transformation through their analyses, studies, and experiments. Since its creation, together with its partners and ecosystem of some hundred actors across the city, FAIRE has already supported more than 30 projects, published 12 studies, and developed 18 experiments on site, as well as a new type of real estate development. More than one hundred actors have committed to supporting the winning entries of the various editions and helping them develop their experimental approaches.

Launched in a very particular context, FAIRE hopes to grapple with the major transformations that Paris and the metropolis face to support an evolution of urban practices, forms, and usages that marry the expectations and needs of the city where we live with those on whose basis we live.
