AIACV Architecture Festival: Film Screening: "Grand Paris - The President and The Architect"
Paris was the first truly modern large city. But it has remained largely unchanged since the 1860s.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy had a vision to turn Paris into a model super-metropolis for the 21st century - a post-Kyoto sustainable city of 12 million that would break down the distinction between downtown and suburb, and will drive France's economic growth. He calls it "Grand Paris" and he is determined that it will be the crown jewel of his legacy.
To realize his vision, Sarkozy's government engages 10 star architects, including France's Djamel Klouche and Roland Castro, Mike Davies from the UK, and Winy Maas, from Holland. Their mission: to spend a year rethinking Paris.

About the Festival:
The central theme around the Central Valley Architecture Festival is an exploration of the identity of our region; the relationship of architecture and design to our culture, landscape, climate and history.
The festival mission is three-fold:
1. Highlight existing relationships between the region and its architecture.
2. Create an ongoing dialogue to inform a distinct, regional, architectural identity.
3. Facilitate greater transparency with the public in how architects create our built environment and how it impacts their daily lives.
Festival Dates: October 12 to October 28, 2012
Location: Varies by event
Founded in 1942 the American Institute of Architects, Central Valley Chapter, represents the interests of the architectural profession in 17 Central Valley counties.
