Winter school

Each year, the School organizes an intensive workshop that brings together more than 250 students. The aim of this exercise is to experiment with new pedagogies and to work together on transversal reflections on the city, the territory and architecture.
Open to students from the school as well as to French or foreign students from outside institutions (upon registration), the inter-year intensive is given over 5 days in the form of a winter school.

For its 9th edition, the winter school, curated by Thibaut Barrault, architect and teacher, has as theme « Les Formes du Réemploi ».

From February 5 to 9, 2024, the Winter School will be looking at issues related to re-use, re-purposing and recycling. The first method focuses on function, the second on form, the third on matter, but they all structure a more indulgent approach to the material heritage that surrounds us. These processes are all methods and techniques for reclaiming waste, commitments to combat obsolescence, tools for giving a second life to the objects and materials in our environment, and possible readings of the territories in which we work.

While these commitments seem current and necessary, they are struggling to find a stronger relationship with the discipline of architecture. They tend to take precedence over any other aspect of design, and to be defined as sufficient for a project. The winter school "Les Formes du Rémploi" will therefore be an invitation to think collectively about the ideas and forms of re-using materials and objects from our everyday lives, and will seek to confront them with formal and cultural ambitions that are more firmly rooted in the history, present and future of architecture.

Associated with the notions of 'as-found' and 'ready-made', these processes recall the great artistic canons and allow us to take a committed aesthetic stance. Confronted with questions of construction and assembly, they point to the subject of language and suggest a new definition.
