How can we rethink architecture in a world of finite resources? It is urgent to rethink production itself, which is still too often considered in the context of an extractivist policy. It is also urgent to invent new ways of living.
We propose to experiment with enviable alternatives for our territories and our cities, alternatives that would be forged with and from the living. We are proposing an alliance with mushrooms, which can constitute a highly available, sustainable, renewable material.
The In Vivo Pavilion will offer a time and a place for critical thinking, particularly because questions of responsibility, of taking other beings into account, and of justice will be discussed in relation to living and building. But its strength will be defined above all by concrete and inventive proposals for an enviable future of living.
