École nationale supérieure d’architecture de la Villette. Moderators Cécile Broqua et Pierre Chabard.
Contribution by Michel Schweizer and 3 teams of architects that took part in the creation of PRIMITIFS : Ateliers MAJCZ Architectes – Martine Arrivet & Jean-Charles Zébo // Nicole Concordet // Duncan Lewis Scape Architecture.
Primitifs (Primitive) questions humanity’s responsibility and action that is thought to have become the main force driving the transformation of earth’s ecosystem since the development of industrialization. As part of the creation process, three teams of architects were asked to imagine a building displaying a sign that could indicate for future generations the existence of a site where highly radioactive elements are buried. Realistic or poetic utopias, short-lived buildings, transmission rituals or even duty of remembrance are many notions that come into dialogue around the imaginary question about the peculiar heritage.
