European House of Architecture – Upper Rhine

The Days of Architecture event was created in October 2000 in Strasbourg, on the initiative and under the lead of the Conseil regional de l’Ordre des architectes d’Alsace (the regional council of the Alsatian Architect’s Association). After five successful editions, the association was created in October 2005 and joined the network of the Houses of Architecture in 2010, as an European and a crossing-border house about architecture.
The European House of Architecture – Upper Rhine addresses a growing number and increasingly diverse audience, with the aim of a better acquaintance and a fair appreciation of architecture. Its aspiration focuses on the emergence of a Rhineland area in terms of architecture, by preserving and perpetuating all kinds of events about this art, its issues, its achievements and its protagonists.
Each year the European House of Architecture – Upper Rhine stages its Days of Architecture festival during autumn: no fewer than 200 events in Alsace, in Baden-Württemberg and in Basel around a precise theme and aimed to the general public. (16 cities, 53 000 visitors in 2012 / 17 cities, 50 000 visitors in 2013)
