FUTURE OF PAST
IDEAS COMPETITION INTENDED FOR STUDENTS
IN ARCHITECTURE AND YOUNG GRADUATES
registration are closed
The Hôtel de la Compagnie des Notaires de Paris, located in the heart of the capital, is to be transformed: an architecture competition is currently taking place to this end. Due to issues inherent to concepts of heritage and cultural identity, the transformation of this edifice raise multiple questions going beyond the simple mandatory constrains and prescriptions emitted by the city of Paris.
The present idea competition, created in parallel to the main competition for the building’s renovation, thus appears as its imaginary double.
Which role our build heritage will play in the near or distant future? In order to build the future, must we part with the past, or, should we immortalize our memories?
And you, which position will you take on Paris’s heritage? What role to give to a building such as the Compagnie des Notaires de Paris’ one in the future of the city?
