Événement : les Journées portes ouvertes de l'Ordre des architectes

The 13 and 14 October, under the leadership of the Ordre des architectes, several hundred agencies will open their doors to the public in the whole of France. The opportunity for the players of the discipline to expose all their creativity and to convince of the need to call on their services but especially their know-how.

For two days, near 1 000 architectural cabinets will welcome curious and private individuals to discover a profession still too often badly or little known to the general public. Each in their own way, companies will try to show the backstage of the profession and the rich panel of achievements that their practice encompasses: from small projects to titanic equipment, to patrimonial rehabilitation and of course the individual house. In addition to the presentation of these structures, the event will take many forms - conferences, site visits, concerts and urban walks - which will give a complete picture of this function.


"There is a great diversity in this profession, it is all its richness. " Catherine Jacquot, President of the National Council of the Order of Architects (CNOA)

For the fourth consecutive year, the challenge of the Open Days, JPO for the intimate, is to show to every type of inhabitant - periurban, villagers and city dwellers - the appropriateness of using an architect and the repercussions of such an approach on the quality of life of cities and housing. For, unfortunately, using a construction specialist seems to be wrongly reserved for an elite, whereas its intervention makes it possible to better understand and master the multiple problems involved in a constructed construction, phase from design to delivery, whether constructive, environmental, heritage or economic.

An initiative to highlight which allows to bring professionals and individuals to meet and to discover the reality of a trade.
