Architecture is sometimes a field of unknown by those who do not study it, or work in it. In those days more and more, via Internet (blogs) people can learn more about it, but still, architecture has to be travelled all over! You have to walk through it to understand it! Some cities perform this way of festivals to help people go through a real piece of art.
In Lyon since the 19th Century, a celebration takes place around the 8th Decembre for four days. This celebration lights up several places around the city, buildings, public places, parks, streets, foutains…
At the beginning it is a religious celebration, that has became a popular festival each year! Every single year, over 4 millions of people, inhabitants and tourists, come to Lyon to see this giant performance! Streets are crowded, lighted up, with music and different performances.
In Montpellier, since 2006 the Festival des Architectures Vives (Bright Architectures Festival) takes place in the historical center of Montpellier South of France, in private places often closed to public. The aim is to sensibilize people to the architecture around them that they don’t even notice in their life. This festival offers young architects the opportunity to propose, think, reasearch and experience new fields in architectural conception. It also shows the relashionship between historical and modern architecture – attractives and funny installations.
