“We believe that today it is fundamental to totally rethink an architectural
education. Architecture must no longer be reduced to a professional or specialized education
CONFLUENCE is not only the name of the site of the school in Lyon but it is
the core concept on which the school’s pedagogy and teaching is founded upon.
This new school not only integrates new visions on and for society but also
incorporates new methods and contemporary tools linked to creativity,
production and communication.
Architecture today needs to have a more humanist ambition”
