WIT's Department of Architecture is to present an exhibition on French Urban Design Project by one of its former ERASMUS students. The exhibition refers to the topic of shrinking and ageing cities. It focuses on the depopulation issue and design challenges emerging from this problem.
One of WIT’s former French ERASMUS Exchange Students, Alix Sportich du Réau de la Gaignonniere, together with his Colleague Alice Villatte, prepared the exhibition project “Villefranche-de-Rouergue: Death and Life of a Small French City”.
The concept is based on the co-authors’ joint final thesis at the School of Architecture in Marne-la-Vallée (l’École d'architecture de la ville & des territoires à Marne-la-Vallée).
Alix Sportich and Alice Villatte were awarded the "Young Talent Architecture Award" for their thesis in 2016, together with 9 other finalists from all over Europe.
WIT Department of Architecture is delighted to welcome Alix Sportich back to Waterford and to display this exhibition in the Department of Architecture at Waterford Institute of Technology.
The launch of the exhibition is on 2 Oct 2017 at 5.30pm and it runs 9am-5pm from 3 October onwards.
