entrer: exhibition in Paris

Projects by Baukunst and MSA
Projects by Baukunst and MSA© Maxime Delvaux
The exhibition entrer: presents five recent projects of architecture realized in Belgium. This exhibition is organized by Wallonia-Brussels Architectures at the Center Wallonia-Brussels in Paris.
WBA presents five projects reflecting the diversity of Wallonia and Brussels' architectural output, in an original and intriguing scenography - a wandering which will lead from the window to the lounge via chambers-: territorial setting-up, scale of the project, the diversity of generations and practices, orders and typologies, so many elements of context which testify of the know-how of the architects in front of specific situations. Audrey Contesse, the curator, invites the photographer Maxime Delvaux and a sound designer Christophe Rault to give their analysis on the five projects. Two analyses under the shape of a video and a soundtrack that are not synchronized, complete a collection of objects gleaned and selected by the curator on every sites and in the offices of the architects to highlight the materiality and the relevance of the projects.
A publication will deepen the exhibition by articles of international critics, interviews, and the presentation of the projects of the exhibition.
