In the context of the Festival des Architectures Vives at Montpellier, France (18th-21st June), on the theme ‘Ephémères Curiosités’, ateliermob purposed to reinvent children’s universe on one antique mansion’s courtyard of Montpellier.
An universe that can interact with children and provide them the sense of proportion and scale as long as the possibility to explore their curiosity, over and over, continuously searching for changes in the surrounding space through their own imagination. An intervention that can gain different meanings depending on its form, and enhancing it just because of its ephemeral character. But not only children will achieve alternative spatial versions of the same place. Any other visitor will always have a new perception and will be curious to assist to the spatial evolution.
The intervention will contrast with the permanent and solid character of the building’s courtyard and the preservative patrimonial character of the surroundings, turning into an attraction, calling people in to observe or to interact.
