Architecture Days

The Architecture Days are held in Alsace and over the border in Switzerland and Germany and help showcase architecture in all its shapes and forms.

What are the "Architecture Days"?

The Architecture Days are organised in the autumn and set out to explore architecture through a series of events in Alsace, Bade-Wurtenberg and the region of Basel. The events have the strong backing of the City of Strasbourg and offer a perfect opportunity to explore and understand the architecture of the three regions.

Organised through a Franco German Association, the Architecture Centre of the Upper Rhine, the events involve a wide variety of participants and spectators, including internationally reputed architects, students, academics and sociologists, teachers and students, companies and schools.
