Atelier LUMA, a programme of LUMA Arles, has been conducting a research project that focuses on the construction of architectural projects designed for the challenges of the 21st century, Building for Uncertainties since 2019. The architects and designers are developing a building approach guided by two key concepts: frugality and resilience. In this context, Atelier LUMA will organise a symposium on 26–27 May around sustainable and locally sourced design, architectural and scenographic practices.
Frugality involves limiting the use of resources and energies. Resilience is pursued by integrating climate, social, and economic uncertainties into the building’s structure, spaces, and uses. Conferences, presentations, student workshops, and site visits will be organised to provide a platform of exchanges between experts, practitioners, and students in Arles on the Parc des Ateliers.
