The exposition "Rêves d'Architecture" brings artists together who integrate a reflection on architecture in their working and reclaim the different stages of elaboration of an architectural project in their work: from the conception to the realisation, from the design to the model and the construction.
The exposition proposes a voyage through the codes of architecture and interrogates the required and complex relationship that architecture maintains with the notion of a design, like the plastic arts, between utopia and reality. The imaginary figure of the architect appears as a watermark throughout the process without being able to be associated with a real personality. If evocations of the great names in architecture, iconic achievements or well-defined styles are sometimes can be detected, they will remain in a state of latency, with the idea of an almost ghostly presence.
