LA BOÎTE DE NUIT
Continuing its reflection upon locations dedicated to leisure activities – following on from last year’s exhibition Landskating, les lieux du skate à travers le monde –, in 2017 the villa Noailles will devote its annual architecture exhibition to discos.
Through a selection of projects from the 1960s to today, the exhibition aims to apprehend the architectural tools put into play in the conception of these emancipating spaces. Discos are a testing ground for architects: through technological and formal devices, they develop an artificial world with a controlled atmosphere that is isolated from the outside.
Alongside a collection of projects from France and abroad, a commission was placed with an architect to design a disco at the heart of the villa Noailles itself. Open for the duration of the exhibition, this pop up “nightclub” highlights and offers to experience in vivo the exhibition’s intent.
The exhibition presents rare documents, some are unseen (plans, models, photographs, sculptures, graphic works, videos), photographic series and texts by guests contributors.
