ARCHI'Nature,

a great european festival to discover, to ...

The ARCHI’Nature festival proposes to artistic teams to create a work on a chosen site in order to reveal its specific characteristics. In this way, they enhance our landscapes and invite us to reflect on our environment.

These artistic devices are then invitations and pretexts to rediscover our daily life, for a season.

All the partners involved in the ARCHI’Nature adventure are convinced that art and culture are precious sources of wealth for our territories as well as our society. Thus, they support this cultural initiative and more broadly the development of territorial projects in rural areas that promote artistic creation and active citizenship.

In order to create a dynamic around these artistic installations, the ARCHI’Nature festival team is involved in a mediation dynamic in order to create links between citizens, the environment and Art. Scientific, philosophical or creative openings will be brought here and there in the form of conferences, exhibitions or shows.


Discover Art...

 

… because creativity allows Man to innovate and to imagine what he will be tomorrow, to question himself about society but also to sublimate and enhance his living space…

 

The challenge of this festival is to create bridges through constructions or artistic and architectural creations that can promote the social link, mediation and discovery of the landscape.

 

Halfway between design, architecture and art, Archi Nature is inspired by the living world to design hybrid and diverse spaces such as: furniture, a kiosk, a totem, a gazebo or an agora, and much more…


Discover nature...

 

 

…rediscover the landscapes of our daily life or those forgotten and neglected to appreciate their value and exceptional quality.

 

 

The festival is based on the concept of biomimicry, a discipline that consists of imitating nature, drawing inspiration from the models and elements present in the biological world to apply them to other fields.

In other words, it is a question of being inspired by nature, its colors, its forms, its materials, its capacities or its functioning.

 

 

On the other hand, the festival wishes to engage in an eco-responsible approach by promoting the re-use and the local supply chains

To live together the territories !

The ambition of the ARCHI’Nature festival is to link territories and people…

This festival, like the first and the second edition, wants to revisit the possible links that exist between an artistic or architectural installation and the everyday landscapes of our rural territories. The main purpose is to reconnect nature and culture.

This third edition will focus on the links between nature and inhabited spaces, built by humans :

How biodiversity can be reinvigorated in towns that are too mineralized today ? How to make our creativity dialogue with our natural environment ?

Through artistic gestures, we will ask ourself the question of the place left to nature in our society. We will question our relationship with the natural and the living, to highlight the social and environmental issues.

ARCHI’Nature 2022 will present a series of installations and constructions that will interact directly with the constituent elements of our rural territory and its landscapes, through their location, the materials used and the limited use of techniques. These works will be able to take advantage of the resources of a place, the specific characteristics of a site, as well as spontaneous and accidental elements that can cause a meeting.

This artistic initiative is a pretext to discover or rediscover each other, to live together and to make society!

Artists, architects, residents, nature lovers or those who love your territory… Take part in this artistic discovery!

    Iseo

    3 sites for the ARCHI’Nature festival in Italia !

    VIA MIROLTE

    Via Mirolte is one of the main streets in the historic centre of Iseo, one of the three medieval access points to the town. Characterized by the presence of delicatessen, small shops and gathering place, this street is included among the municipal projects for revitalizing the historic centre, in order to make it a place to meeting and sharing. The street is bordered by two historic buildings linked to the noble Oldofredi family: on one side the small church of Santa Maria del Mercato, formerly the family chapel, and on the opposite side the Castle Oldofredi.

    GARDEN OF THE CASTLE OLDOFREDI

    The Castle Oldofredi is a defensive structure dating back to the 13th century. Belonging to the feudal family of the same name, the building is now owned by the municipality and houses the Civic Hall (which also hosts weddings, conferences and concerts), the Library, the Museum of the Two Wars and the offices of some associations. The garden in front of it, which slopes down towards Via Mirolte, will be the site of the art installation of the Archi’Nature contest.

    PIAZZA MAZZINI

    An intimate and evocative square, which develops next to the ancient Palazzo dell’Arsenale. One of Iseo’s historic fountains, still in use today, still stands in the square. Here one of the art installations of the Archi’Nature contest can take shape. The lake

    Kerkini - Greece

    The story of Lake Kerkini in Macedonia goes as follows. During the 1930s, the people constructed a dam that changed the landscape in the following decades. The result is a lake that inhabits dozens of bird species, some of which found shelter from extinction here.

    Kerkini Lake isn’t attractive only to birds, however. Many fish species inhabit the wetlands, while humans come to enjoy fresh air and fascinating beauty of the lake.

    ARCHINATURE-territoire-Kerkini

    The lake owes its unparalleled beauty to hills and mountains that surround it. Before you set off on scaling the vantage points for some superb views, take photos of riverside forests that will match any postcard. The more you climb, the more you will become aware of how Lake Kerkini is large.

    Rich bird life of approximately 300 species resides around the human-made lake. More so, the surrounding area is famous as one of the best birdwatching destinations in Europe. Among other species, you can see pelicans, cormorants and herons around.

    Many visitors come to the artificial lake to admire its exceptional beauty. Besides magnificent scenery, Lake Kerkini promotes ecotourism. Admire the landscape by walking along the lakeside or by taking a boat ride in traditional boats.
