ARCHIPAL final symposium : 23-24 october 2023

Launched in January 2019 for a four-year period, the ARCHIPAL ANR project "Architecture, aluminium et patrimoine XXe-XXIe siècle", aims to write the history of aluminium in architecture, to understand the processes of patrimonialization and to draw up an inventory of the presence of this material and its state of conservation in France's built heritage. Its final symposium, "Architecture, aluminium et patrimoine XXe-XXIe siècles : Entre innovation, patrimoine et environnement", will take place on October 23 and 24, 2023 at the Palais du Louvre - Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musées de France - 14, Quai François Mitterrand, 75001 Paris.

Nathalie POSTIC, iconographer at the Institut pour l'histoire de l'aluminium, partner of ARCHIPAL, will present the following paper: "Aluminium and architecture in the photographic collections of the Institut pour l'histoire de l'aluminium" in the session "La fabrique du patrimoine".
