ELa invites dialogue, debate and dissent through exposure to a variety of practices in and around architecture. Inaugural session to run 1 - 24 May 2018 in Paris & Venice
ELa is free - not for profit, no fees, no tuition, no salaries, no assessment with no qualifications offered and it is much more, an open forum for free thought, for shared ideas, true learning and discovery.
Various talks including des'Esparon series
The des’Esparon talks expound on history, politics, depopulation of rural areas versus massive urbanisation, resource management - extending micro experiences to the macro issues facing architecture and the world. Further, the practice of making, has led to the formation of a nascent theory - architecture artisanale that stems from the immediacy of an architect physically building. These observations and realisations ensure this practice of architecture as continuing research, which filters into other projects of robert grace architecture's practice in Paris.
