Innovation is the calling card of the future – Anna Eshoo

If you have been listening to the politicians over the past few months you will know 'Innovation' is all the go. Well, strangely enough, as it turns out, that's not all just talk as Innovation in French Architecture and Urban Planning is at the core of the French architecture and planning professions.

The Alliance Francaise de Brisbane is holding an exciting and special event as part of a cycle of conferences about innovation in France. The first of which will address Innovation in French Architecture and Urban Planning to be held at the Alliance Française de Brisbane, 262 Montague Road, West End on Friday 17 June, 2016 commencing at 6.30pm and running for one hour.

Tickets are available online:

Throughout architectural history France has incorporated many original designs and inventions in unique, first-to-be-seen buildings and large scale innovative urban projects – think Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Pyramid and that's just in Paris. You will discover there are many other regions of France rich in contemporary and innovative projects.

The conference will be in English and will give you the opportunity to discover the impacts of modern innovation through a special architectural and urban Tour de France.

Sign up now for an evening where you will see how revolutionary inspiration morphs into innovation. Architecture expert, Karine Dupre will be discussing new projects and innovative architecture currently being undertaken in France. You will see how innovation can showcase genuine technological prowess to develop better solutions to critical issues such as public housing, better environment and healthier living conditions.
