Confluence is proud to continu its collaboration with the Fondation Bullukian in Lyon in 2018.
For the Festival of Light 2018, students will build a pavilion in the garden of the Fondation with the help of Lyon city.
Great opportunity for us to look back at 2017 edition. Three students from Confluence, Maxime Beaudoncq, Meriem Benkirane and Kevin Maille built “The Spark” , an interactive installation where 4636 people came.
In 2017 Confluence Institute and La Fondation Bullukian worked together to present “The Spark” in order to foster creativity and innovation.
The installation was conceived during a workshop ” La frontière du vide” at Confluence Institute lead by Juan Velasquez- architect of light.
The spark installation offers to strike sparkes to produce a light projection on a sculpture made by the artist Vincent Mauger.

Confluence is very proud to welcome Francis Kéré for a intensive workshop for Fall semester 2018
Throughout the year and during the inter-semester summer period, intensive workshops are organized with invited personalities acting in architecture and related fields (scenography, environment, digital fabrication, art, danse, theory etc..)
Diébédo Francis Kéré was born in 1965 in Gando, Burkina Faso and studied at the Technical University of Berlin. Parallel to his studies, he established the Kéré Foundation, and in 2005 he founded Kéré Architecture.
His architectural practice has been recognized nationally and internationally with awards including the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (2004) for his first building, a primary school in Gando, Burkina Faso, and the Global Holcim Award 2012 Gold. Kéré has undertaken projects in varied countries including Burkina Faso, Mali, Germany and Switzerland. In 2017 the Serpentine Galleries commissioned him to design the Serpentine Pavilion in London. He has held professorships at the Harvard GSD and the Swiss Academia. In 2017 he accepted the professorship for “Architectural Design and Participation” at TU München (Germany).
Kéré continues to reinvest knowledge back into Burkina Faso and other sites across four different continents. He has developed innovative construction strategies that combine traditional building techniques and materials with modern engineering methods.
Kéré’s work has recently been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Architekturmuseum in Munich and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (both in 2016) and his work has been selected for group exhibitions such as: Small Scale, Big Change: New Architectures of Social Engagement, at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2010) and Sensing Spaces, at the Royal Academy, London (2014).
