Bordeaux School of Architecture (ENSAP-Bx)

Activity: Visiting an external institution typesVisiting an external academic institution


Invited by Associate Professor Hocine Aliouane-Shaw, our new Lecturer Mirian Calvo traveled to Bordeaux to co-facilitate with Lecturer Sally Daniels (UWE Bristol) a two-day workshop on Participatory Architecture and Co-design to the Master’s students at Rebuilding the World (RBW) and to the urban planning students from the School of Architecture Bordeaux (ENSAP-BX).

The workshops were held inside the heart of the ongoing participatory refurbishment of the quartier Ensemble à Claveau, North side of Bordeaux, developed by Nicole Concordet‘s architectural practice – Construire. Claveau Village was originally conceived as a garden city of 250 social housing scheme, developed during the 1950s by the local municipality. This feature of the workshops made possible to merge theoretical concepts with real-life participative processes.
