The smart city,
the sustainable city,
the green city …
Are these concepts impostures and are the words disenchanted?
The city is certainly disillusioned, it must be dense but green, contextual but cosmopolitan, authoritarian but participative, traditional but modern.

And if we talk about beauty, the one that will save the world, the one that transforms the need into an atmosphere, the one that loves architecture and that architecture loves, the one that expresses life when it expresses the creativity of its creators.


Biennale  Rabat prefiguration March 23rd,2018

AGORA is a prefiguration, a work-in-process, a  work-in-progress, no thesis or antithesis and certainly no synthesis, an adventure where we explore hypotheses without certainty.

Agora Biennale

After three years of work, our team has the plaisure to invite you to discover our exhibitions from March 23 to September 16. We will apprehend the city as a common good and we will talk about urbanism but mainly about humanism.

We wish a wonderful new year, with creative doubt. Essential element to the creation.
