Dedicated to Architecture: Pavillon de l’Arsenal | Oct 12, 2023

As Architecture shapes cities and urban landscapes, its institutions often encompass different perspectives on society. In a rapidly evolving world, these institutions also face unique contemporary challenges, tackling the issues of sustainability, inclusivity, or the need to preserve a cultural heritage, to name a few. This event will shed a new light on these institutions’ evolving typography.
