Aimer, Aimer, Aimer: Bâtir at La Villa Noailles

Villa Noailles, a modernist project designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens in 1923 initially served as a holiday home, before becoming a cultural venue that hosts exhibitions, artist residencies, competitions and various other programmes.

Inviting ten architecture firms to participate, Aimer, Aimer, Aimer: Bâtir analyses the role of the architect over three time periods: yesterday, today and tomorrow. Each firm answers three questions: which un-built project do they wish they had built, what is their favourite built project and what structure do they hope to realise in the future?

Displaying texts and photgraphic materials from the architects Rudy Ricciotti, Patrick Bouchain, Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal, Luca Merlini, Johannes Norlander, Anna Heringer, Tyin Tegnestue, Peter Cody, Fran Silvestre and Manuel Aires Mateus, the show is an exploration of the practice of architecture and a celebration of Villa Noailles.
