Eleven installations by emerging architects and designers explore the theme of Obsession

 After being selected and receiving support for several months as part of the Prix Public Workshop’s creative assistance program, launched by the association Pli, each project in this exhibition has come to question the discipline and its traditional modes of creation and representation. In the form of micro architecture, immersive mechanisms, photographs, models, prototypes, videos, and sculptures, the eleven installations presented in this exhibition provide an interpretation of the theme of obsession and stimulate a new kind of dialogue with spectators. Some explore the use of memory, utopia, or industry codes as the basis for design work. Others question the notions of limits, shapelessness, or camouflage that permeate their production. The whole of the exhibition, staged by the designer Adrien Rovero, forms a novel corpus that questions the connections between disciplines and the synergies unique to a generation that strives to do things differently and collectively. 
The Prix Public Workshop gives projects the chance to experiment with practice in an effort to break down the disciplinary boundaries between practice and theory, between “doing” and “thinking.” It targets students still in school and recent graduates and seeks to expand the field of the possible, thereby stimulating students’ curiosity in other areas of creation; it supports their projects by granting them visibility and encouraging diversity in architectural practices.   By partnering with this first edition of the Prix Public Workshop, the Pavillon de l’Arsenal is maintaining its commitment to creation by young people in architecture and design through programs that seek to make and to do, as in the program FAIRE.
