Evolutions in technology  are creating endless and unpredictable changes in pedagogy, business and the economy. It is because of this influence of technology that it is necessary to rethink the way in which these areas operate, develop and share knowledge. With that in mind, a dedicated team created an independent institute in 2017 to pursue that goal and focus early-on the applied research and entrepreneurial aspects of architecture, design, engineering and the arts.

Area institute is a non-profit organisation for curating creative design and architecture. It aims, in France, Europe and abroad, at the transdisciplinary teaching and experimentation of emerging practices in architecture, design, fabrication and construction. It also brings support and exposure to curated artists, architects and designers by organising, along the year, exhibitions, symposiums, workshops, masterclasses and residencies. The curation of knowledge exchange and transfer is the core project of the institute. Teaching digital technologies to trigger creativity and deepen interactions between designers. Identifying and promoting emerging significant practices and trends in research and the industry. Aiming both at conversing with experts of the profession and a wide public audience, including the young ones.

By doing so, the institute acts as a bridge between academic institutions, research entities, industrial capacities and demands, as well as ambitious and visionary practices. Curating the links between them and creating efficient and appropriate bridges when projects need them to achieve their goals is the key value at work in Area’s efforts to foster innovation and autonomy.

Area aims at emulating a new generation of architects, engineers, programmers, designers and developers in computational design, fabrication and construction processes, and produce research areas that favour entrepreneurship. In order to do so, the executive, advisory and management teams need to be both on the cutting-edge of scientific practices and aware of the very demanding contemporary market that ensures that technological applications find strong business development perspectives. It is because of this that AREA brings together young and talented professionals from all fields and guides them towards meaningful and useful applications of their intense and collaborative research, thereby leading the way for further integration of academic research and new ways of thinking and working.

We favor cross-disciplinary work as we believe that working between various industries and fields strengthens interaction between sciences and arts.This collaboration is essential to furthering the fields of architecture and design. Our goal is to revive and grow our knowledge base and help practices thrive thereby constructively shaping the future of contemporary societies.

AREA meets new demands for post-university environments. Collective and often open-source practices are profoundly reconfiguring the trade.

Area’s goal is twofold and composed of two complementary structures. In addition to the institute, Area’s secondary structure is its accelerator. It supports, develops and promotes Products & Services in AEC and thought as second set for Area members and residents who wish to pursue their projects with an entrepreneurial perspective in a tailored environment.
