École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris-Belleville
The École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris-Belleville is a well-known French school in architecture.StoryCreated in 1969, the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris-Belleville melts its teaching since the beginning on a principle: a base of knowledge related to an authentic culture of the project.CharacteristicsThe school was built on a series of fundamental agreements: to reinforce in the teaching of architecture its character of higher education related on research and the possibility of offering a range of practices diversified to the graduate students, to develop the science of the project, convergence of the knowledge and know-how, the theory and the practice, to find relevant articulations and associations between the lesson and to develop the international partnerships, to reaffirm that the teaching of architecture cannot be limited to a simple vocational training. It results from the bursting of the section of Architecture of the École Nationale Supérieure of the fine arts because a group of teachers and students had wanted to give up the academism, had wanted to convene other disciplines that that of the only project, that one crosses the disciplines, that one proceeds by analogy, by mutual enrichment, in order to give the conscience of architecture and his limits in his implications historical, ideological, sociological, philosophical. It was already the idea that the disciplines progress only because the discoveries of a field are transposable with another.ResearchAt ENSA Paris-Belleville research is carried out through the Institut Parisien de Recherche: Architecture, Urbanistique, Société, which is the department that participates in the UKNA. The area of research includes architectural history and heritage, architecture of dwellings, territorial architecture, transport and sustainability and the study of Asian and African cities. Characteristic for IPRAUS is its focus on combining architecture, urbanism and landscape design with sociology and the human sciences.
