The project is an exploration of the intersection between the proficiency of architecture and the performance of inhabitants. This transversal approach to the profession attempts to shed light on the implications of architecture in a rapidly changing contemporary world. The exhibition proposes an optimistic view of the world where inhabitant communities are impelled to act on their living environments, their everyday lives. Through documentaries on living communities at work on the transformation of their daily environments, from Johannesburg to Hanoi, from Detroit to Bordeaux and Mérignac, we propose a different angle from which to look at the life that is already present everywhere, along with the means of an astute, accurate and tactful strategy to enhance it.
