Converging Territories was a pilot-project for architects’ mobility in Europe. In the framework of a residence, the applicants were invited to develop proposals, linked to a specific territorial or spatial situation, located in one of the three cities involved: Dublin, Paris and Prague.

Project organizers provided applicants with issues linked to specific territories or spaces, and applicants are free to interpret them. However, their proposals should address current stakes of European cities: urban sprawl, architectural creation in historical settings, reuse of service buildings, migration, transformation of large suburban areas.
