Feedback from past events
We offer thematic guided tours on various professional exhibitions & fairs, thanks to the expertise of our team of journalists. In small groups, architects invited by AA meet a selection of exhibitors, depending on the chosen theme: light, wood construction, sustainable energy, … We welcome our participants in Paris and travel from there to the fair location, where we offer customized assistance during half or full day.
During the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, we curated the Material Experiences event, in partnership with Lightbox, organizing meetings between architects and the construction industry.
For instance, Marie-Caroline Piot and Laurent-Marc Fischer (partner architects at French office Architecture-Studio) met Béatrice Mange (creative director at Tarkett flooring company) and shared solutions for circular economy and innovative products.
Guillaume Loizeaud (director Reed Expositions France construction department, and organizer of Batimat) met Lucie Niney and Frédéric Bonnet (co-curators of the French pavilion at the Biennale) and talked about inhabiting architecture.
The panel discussions took place at the Navy Officer’s Club, and were all followed by a cocktail reception.
