Since its first edition, FAIRE has accelerated and supported more than seventy research projects materialized as gardens, tables, prototypes, real estate development models, books, tiles, bricks, exhibitions, urban playgrounds, living “green scaffolding,” metropolitan signage, workshops, lamps, public benches, experiments, studies, water tanks, shelters, protective street furniture, and more. The diversity of projects reflects both our desire to help out highly committed individuals and teams that are engaged in research. It also demonstrates our deep belief in the importance of finding fitting forms to showcase these pluralistic approaches and disseminate them as widely as possible.
For this sixth edition, FAIRE, the first accelerator dedicated to projects undertaken by architects, designers, and landscape designers, whether emerging, established, or students, is continuing to execute on its outreach strategy in order to explore all of society’s challenges that relate to the metropolis, including climate, energy, revegetation, and sobriety. Now more than ever, at a time when the city must reinvent itself, FAIRE offers the opportunity for those involved in designing the city to become actors and instigators of these innovative transformations.
Presenting a project is easy. Simply log into the faireparis.com platform and send us a brief overview of your proposed intervention, as well as information regarding your team, development timeline, research, needs, and expectations. An expert commission will review your proposal. The most noteworthy projects will be invited to interview with a jury comprised of FAIRE partners and past participants from the previous five cohorts.
Should your project be selected, the accelerator will then assist you in defining your research process and finding the necessary partners to help develop it, offer financial support, gather technical and logistical resources, and possibly even source suitable host territories.
With FAIRE, take part in the city in the making!+
