The Pavilion is the starting point of the Festival des Architectures Vives. It aims to inform and inform visitors to guide them in their journey.
Ideally located in the course of the CCI of Montpellier in the city center, it is an unavoidable place with several objectives:
- To be the place of reception and information of the public,
- Being the meeting point and starting point of the pathway during the Festival as easily identifiable,
- Make the link with previous years, in pictures and by the presentation of the FAV books
- This is also the place of the public vote for the best installation.

Beauty is a question of perspective. Waste isn’t generally considered beautiful, but changing its use (upcycling) can make it sublime. it is time to consider waste as a resource, not a burden.
Sterile water cans used in hospitals are not sorted and unfortunately end up in landfills (approx. 30 per day per hospital). Our structure is built with 14 self supporting arches of 60 cans each, braced together with threaded rods. The festival’s visitors will be urged to build small interactive creations with the can’s caps.
