“Toit et moi”, History of Social Housing in France since 1912.

Saint Denis, France

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the beginnings of social housing in France. This temporary public exhibition was held in Saint Denis (North of Paris) to retrace the history of social housing in France since 1912.

The scenography of this exhibition was designed to express the continuity and achievements of social housing. Shaped around the notion of “building”, not only housing but also communities and culture, the exhibition is made of connected units representing each key period in the history of social housing in France.

The exhibition combines models and original furniture with visual elements enhanced graphically to portray realistically the buildings, interiors and historical context over the past 100 years.

The exhibition was designed and installed by the Gulliver design agency specialising in curatorial design which I was working for as a curatorial designer. My role for this project included the design of the space and the furniture, organizing the content as well as communicating with historians and museums.
