The 2022 edition of the Festival des Architectures Vives received very positive feedback from the public with a number of visitors of around 10,000 people.

The purpose of the Festival des Architectures Vives is to raise public awareness of the broad field of architecture. It strives not only to highlight the work of a young generation of architects, landscape architects, and urban planners but also to discover unexpected urban territories.

Some installations allow interaction with the public. Without leaving physical traces, the FAV seeks to mark the spirits, initiate a global reflection on architecture and its development in an existing urban context as well as create a dialogue between contemporary creation and heritage. Mediators and students at the Montpellier School of Architecture are present at each location and allow visitors to better appreciate the course. The event is free, testifying to this desire to be open to as many people as possible.

FAV 2022 teams
The teams that create the ephemeral installations are selected after a call for applications launched in September. They come from France and abroad.
