Les Docks – Cité de la Mode et du Design
The prize award ceremony will be held in Les Docks – Cité de la Mode et du Design early March, as well as the winner’s exhibition, from the 14th of March to the 14th of April.
Located on the banks of the river Seine, between Bastille, the Jardin des Plantes and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Les Docks – Cité de la Mode et du Design will host the FIPCOM competition awards ceremony and exhibition of works by the winners. The Docks development, by architects Jakob + MacFarlane, is more than a mere building: it is in itself a creative and contemporary work. It is composed of screen-printed glass panes on a metal structure with a landscaped roof. This multidisciplinary space houses the Institut Français de la Mode (French Institute of fashion), designer showrooms and exhibition spaces, while a lounge bar, club and restaurants complete the offering. With its bold, undulating architecture, and its vocation as a center focusing on culture and creation, the Docks have become one of Paris’ most remarkable landmarks.
