Villa Medici Festival des Cabanes | 2023 Edition
From 24 May to 1 October 2023
Ephemeral installations, micro-architectures, proto-habitats: seven original creations of “cabins” will be installed throughout the summer in the heart of the gardens of the Villa Medici!
For the second year since its creation in 2022, the Villa Medici Festival des Cabanes returns for the whole summer and invites architects, artists and researchers to move into the historic gardens of the Villa Medici.
The 7 projects have been specially designed for the festival by the collectives of architects and design studios ArchiSculpteurs, Atelier CRAFT, Atelier Poem, Aurel Design Urbain, Nelson Wilmotte Architectes, offset and orizzontale.
Displayed in the open air for four months, these structures, which are made of materials that are often reused or part of an eco-responsible approach, offer the public a renewed experience of the gardens of the Villa Medici and invite visitors to rethink the question of the modular and sustainable habitat, as well as that of our relationship with nature.
Through the utopia of the cabin, the collectives adopt an approach that is sensitive to contemporary architectural and environmental issues and take up the challenge of designing projects intimately linked to the historical heritage of the Villa Medici.
