- 5 - Boisbuchet Workshop (ArD students)

For 25 years C.I.R.E.C.A. (Centre International de Recherche et d’Education Culturelle et Agricole) has organized a series of interdisciplinary workshops that take place every summer, an initiative of Vitra Design Museum’s founding director Alexander von Vegesack, who started both projects at the same time. These workshops draw participants from all over the world to live and work for one week with renowned designers, architects and artists at the Domaine de Boisbuchet, a secluded country estate in the Southwest of France.

    The aim of our courses is not to produce a “perfect” product, but to offer insights into the creative process and the challenges involved – to think rationally, work imaginatively and display manual dexterity. The courses focus on practical design and range from concrete topics to questions purposely left unanswered, from furniture and products, choreography, fashion, scenography, installations, interior design and architecture to robotics and engineering. In the evenings an accompanying programme is offered with lectures, talks and leisure activities. The extensive grounds of Domaine de Boisbuchet are perfect for jogging and rambling, and the shores of our private lake invites for swimming or campfires in the evening.
