THE CAPITAL ISSUE (ES) -MÉTROPOLES
LARGE SCALE
THE GRAND PARIS MEETINGS
INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE SYMPOSIUM

OCTOBER 1 AND 2, 2009
LARGE ROOM, LEVEL -1

At a time when the question of a “Greater Paris” is at the heart of public debate, the Center Pompidou is organizing October 1 and 2, 2009 , at the initiative of Frédéric Mitterrand, Minister of Culture and Communication, an international conference bringing together the biggest names in international architecture such as Vittorio Gregotti, Rem Koolhaas, Thom Mayne, or Dominique Perrault.

These two days of reflection and debate will be devoted to the future of large-scale metropolises; they will offer a critical reading of the phenomena of urbanization by re-examining the major approaches (historical, economic, ecological) which shape the discourse on the city, based on reference proposals designed by the invited architects. The symposium will initiate a dialogue between confirmed figures and emerging players in architecture.

In order to ensure their wide distribution in France and abroad, these meetings will be broadcast live on the website (metropoles.centrepompidou.fr) created specifically for this conference. Internet users will also benefit from information on the guest architects, the main topics covered and a list of internet links.

Published in editions of the Center Pompidou prior to the meetings, a bilingual work in French and in English will reproduce the main challenges brought to light by the speakers by illustrating them with numerous examples of contemporary projects.

CONFERENCE PROGRAM
The debates will be moderated by Frédéric Migayrou, deputy director of the National Museum of Modern Art /
Industrial creation center, scientific director of the conference and Élias Guenoun, scientific advisor.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1, 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
THE CITY AND HISTORY MEMORIES OF THE FUTURE

The post-war period posed crucially the question of historic cities and their future, breaking with modernist conceptions of planned development. In the late 1960s, the idea of a return to history and a city factory enriched representations of urban forms and generated innovative thoughts of complexity. This theory of the city must today be measured on development scales hitherto unknown which lead to an identity crisis of the historic city.

This debate will take part: Pier Vittorio Aureli (DOGMA), Peter Eisenman, Luca Galofaro (laN +), Vittorio Gregotti and Bernard Tschumi

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2:30 – 6 p.m.
FACING THE ECOLOGICAL CHALLENGE OF URBAN ECOSOPHIES

Biomass has become in a few years a permanent reference of any architectural project. As this notion is often technical, politicized or even popularized, it is important to return to the fundamental propositions which have forged its meaning and to confront them with the innovative practices of a new ecological reality.

Participeront à ce débat : Andrea Branzi, Adriaan Geuze (West 8), Neven Sidor (Grimshaw Architects), James Wines (Site) et Ken Yeang (TR Hamzah et Yeang)

LA VILLE COMME ORGANISME VIVANT PERSPECTIVES MORPHOGÉNÉTIQUES

L’idée contemporaine d’une cité en perpétuelle mutation animée par des réseaux, a réactivé la conception organiciste de la ville. Hors de toute notion d’échelle, les systèmes «biotech» sont devenus des systèmes de conception susceptibles de contrôler tous les schémas de croissance des domaines dynamiques initiant ainsi un vocabulaire de formes jusqu’alors inconnues.

Participeront à ce débat : Hernan Diaz Alonso (Xefirotarch), Ben van Berkel (UN Studio), Yusuke Obuchi /Theo Spyropoulos (AADRL) Makoto Sei Watanabe et Alejandro Zaera-Polo (FOA)

A PRODUCTIVE DISORDER? GENERIC CHAOS

The expansion of cities, the proliferation of heterogeneous networks, of hybridizations, the emergence of parallel economies, have led to the growth of increasingly uncontrollable urban systems. The model of rational planning seems to have failed in the case of western cities devoted to consumption logics as in that of excessive urban concentrations in emerging countries.

These veritable urban conflagrations which seem to respond to no economic and social logic, in fact hold unsuspected generic capacities to model the urban. Ultimate avatars of consumerist cities or models of a spontaneous order, are the metropolises of the future able to institute a new dispersive economy?

This debate will take part: Rem Koolhaas (OMA-AMO), Kengo Kuma, Brendan MacFarlane (Jakob + MacFarlane), Thom Mayne (Morphosis) and Dominique Perrault
