The ‘cartography of architectural research’ symposium will bring together/architecture schools from around the world to lay the groundwork for a research program in experimental architecture that the Frac Centre-Val de Loire will launch during this first edition. Each school has been asked to present their respective domains and research protocols in the form of a dialogue with the Frac’s Centre-Val de Loire collection. After the Biennale, the schools will be invited in 2018 and 2019 to curate an exhibition/research based on the collection and work conducted in different laboratories.
