Before being the successful architecture company that we know today, 2PMA used to be a cultural association organizing events related to the same discipline. Projection has always been 2PMA first partner in crime.
The 2008's Seven workshop was the very first big gathering we ever settled, and it was wonderful!
Using mostly myspace (we were in 2008) we connected with a couple dozen of architects, designers and artists from all over Europe and invited them in Bordeaux for a week where they were to think of how to enhance seven neighbourhoods from the city.
Each of the seven teams was to work on one site. We organized visits, meals, parties and work sessions which helped them understanding the city and its urbanism purposes. The Workshop finality was an exhibition at 'Arc en rève' (CAPC Bordeaux) one of the most famous architecture associations in France.
We had such a great time meeting new creators and exchanging with them that we had a second Seven Workshop the following year exploring new neighbourhood's from Bordeaux with new and old faces. Today 2PMA participate and organize workshops in foreign countries all year long, we are proud to carry workshops in our company's DNA.
