PARACITY WienParisBeijingDetroitinprogress
This project has as an aim the installation of international meetings of students, architects and of designers brought together in a collective project.This project thus fits in a prospective step which opens a reflexion on a whole of stakes which characterize the current changes:

- phenomenon of metropolisation
- public Spaces
- domestic Cells/temporary architecture
- (s) Object - New media
- Transdisciplinarity

It is an International project which has as an ambition to create a platform of exchanges between students, architects and designers, the schools, the institutions and the various partners.These various entities and the problems posed in the context of the project impose a reflexion, a design and a realization whose matrix is deeply marked by its transdisciplinarity.Indeed, the various components of the platform are characterized by the diversity of their practices, their teaching and of their structure but also by the definition of their stakes. Schools of Design, Schools of applied Art, Schools of Architecture and Architecture Departments of universities are linked together.

Experimenta #1: Vienne

The School of Architecture of Paris Val de Seine, ENSCI (National School of Design), Technische Üniversitat Wien (Alsop Institute), Universität für Angewandte Kunst Wien (University of Applied arts) and Architektur in Progress conceived, realized and tried out in June 2005 on the site of Yppenplatz their proposals.
The principal stake of Paracity is to test and "to live" in Public Place, also the projects led to Vienna are multi-purpose and "reversible". The Parabox are at the same time Playgrounds for the children, Lounges the evening and the Bedrooms with the night and also an Interactive Luminous course with the integrated sensors and fluorescents. The shower_stage are showers, dancing waters, but also Stages for videos projections and Theater Play. The kitchen Lab is a collective kitchen. The platform is a fixed structure for rest and meetings.

Throughout June, we programmed events with designers (Staudecker Iris), architects (Alles Wird Gut, Eisvögel, Feld 72, Querkraft, Map Office), Video (Denize Sozen, RENFAH, Coelestine Engels, etc), artists (Norbert Brunner). These proposals are specifics to the Viennese context, so new projects are today to conceive for Paris.

Norbert Brunner, Iris Staudecker, Querkraft, Map Office, Alles Wird Gut, Feld 72, Eisvögel, RenFah, Coelestine Engels, Deniz Sozen, Anna Mitterer, Caroline Heider, Stefan Kobastsch, Robert Gruber, Clemens Leuschner, Luis Princep Fabra.
