LOCI-IMA is intended to reset the premises for a continuous
state of emergence in architecture: an urgent response to a long-predicted crisis, but also a highlighting of collective
dissatisfaction in the face of global inertia.
LOCI-IMA responds to economic and social imbalances,
to the destruction of climatic equilibrium and to the health crisis, through a
strategy based on: understanding the past, questioning the present and
designing a project, on various scales, as a tool of knowledge capable of
proposing possible futures.
LOCI-IMA aims at sustainability and ecology for the
foundation of a new community, which can inhabit the
world responsibly, a community which must continue to live together in a high density, under new and changing conditions.
LOCI-IMA participates in the construction and
formation of this community through travel: a contemporary version of the “Grand
Tour” across Europe to harvest the richness of accumulated knowledge, an
odyssey through European culture and architectural values for today and
