We present here the award-winning installations of FAV – Festival des Architectures Vives 2018, which took place in Montpellier and was visited by over 18,000 people.

The Jury Prize went to “U.S.I.N.E – Unité Symbiotique Intelligente Naturelle Efficiente” designed by Louis Caux and Margaux Limon. USINE is a garden-like installation that, along with creating a pleasant micro-climate, is also a tiny factory that filters and purifies air, reduces pollution, and produces biomass, energy and food, thus arising the visitors’ awareness of sustainability.

The Visitors’ Award went to “Complicity”, an installation conceived by Mailys Meyer and Camille Vannier to invite the public to action by building the installation itself.
Placed in a small courtyard, the installation was an organic form, made up of thousands of golden flowers, the visitors were asked to complete.

A Honourable Mention went to the “Urban Living Room”, designed by a team from the School of Architecture of the University of Genoa. The installation focused on our relationship with new technologies, as well as on the homogenization and depersonalization that could be their negative byproducts.
