The Pavillon de l’Arsenal, the architecture and urbanism center of Paris and the Parisian Metropolis is a unique place where the arrangement of the city and its architectural realisations are accessible to all. In April 2018, the Pavillon de l’Arsenal and the City of Paris, in collaboration with MINI and with the support of the Caisse des Dépôts and the Parisian design schools and institutions, launched FAIRE 2018 URBAN DESIGN. Following on the success of FAIRE 2017, which was devoted to architectural experimentation, this new season of the program FAIRE seeks to disrupt the current system for producing urban objects by accelerating and financing a small series of prototypes selected by a jury of experts based on the vision, values, and solutions proposed in the projects. Out of 261 projects submitted by designers, architects, collectives, startups, well-known designers, and design school students, the jury, composed of a large panel of experts and presided over by Jean-Louis Missika, selected 12 finalists. From rocks sculpted from stone from the Ile de France to multi-support furniture with plant protection, a climate bank that uses air from quarries, a façade water tank, a cooling vent, an unusual installation for children, research and experiments on cycling habits, metropolitan signage to make Grand Paris a part of Paris,FAIRE is accelerating12 projects that explore and question usages of and strategies for public space in Paris.
