Boisbuchet_Summer Workshops 2017
Design, Architecture, Nature
July 25th - September 23rd
Domaine de Boisbuchet, France
Boisbuchet was the dream of a design amateur and expert: Alexander von Vegesack. He wanted a place where design meets education, in a large sense. So 25 years ago, he bought the 150 hectares Domaine de Boisbuchet. Since then, professionals and students go every year to experience how internationally successful professionals structure their work, and how they approach design problems. Their summer workshops, architectural park, exhibitions and rich community, form their many insights and inspiration for a unique creative experience.
Design-Architecture-Nature Boisbuchet integrates innovative architecture and design into the splendid setting of a 19th century estate. They invest in a culture that respects the past and builds for the future, research into a sustainable relationship between the natural and the man-made and offer a creative environment for people of all cultures to share.
Boisbuchet’s summer workshops have become an annual destination for designers, architects and artists who are curious about new experiences in their practice. Each week, world-renowned tutors and the international, entirely inclusive mix of students create another unique adventure.

Every year, they invite the most inspiring architects & designers from all over the world, to give a week-long workshop at the Domaine de Boisbuchet in South-West France. Every tutor takes into account the inspiring natural environment, and crafts a theme for participants to build upon. Every single workshop is a unique hands-on experience, with the guarantee of learning by doing with materials and tools provided by Boisbuchet. Throughout the week, participants get insight on the process & techniques of top designers, and have the opportunity to connect with like-minded, passionate people.
Grow the Future Now
In 2017, their practical and multidisciplinary workshops look towards a future that demands responsibility as much as it allows creative minds to experiment, play, and learn. They are inviting designers, architects, and artists to pose the best questions, verify their answers, and find out how we should deal with ourselves, society, and politics. In short: get your hands dirty and make the future grow.
