Opening Event, Conference AJAP
Exhibtion of the winners of the French architecture and landscape award AJAP
with: Institut français Berlin
In the framework of the exhibition, AJAP prizewinner Sébastien Martinez Barat will talk about his work on the “Folies”, landscape-integrated elements between architecture and sculpture, on the 27th June. During a residency at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto, he designed a series of these small-scale buildings without any obvious intended function, but rather approached as possible architectural styles, and started working on this concept. Traditionally designed for decoration of landscaped parks, such “Folies” can serve as tools for characterizing metropolitan environments.
Opening speech from Catherine Briat, Cultural Counsellor of the Embassy of France in Germany, Director of the Institute francaise Deutschland and from Francesca Ferguson, festival founder and chief editor.
