The world’s leading architects, engineers and artists, will be participating in the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) annual conference in Paris. Entitled "Entente Cordiale", the event will take place on 26 - 27 October 2007 at Oscar Niemeyer''s headquarters of the French Communist Party - a building rarely opened to the public and the architect''s favourite European project.

The conference will explore the concept of "collaboration" - between architects on major projects; between architects internationally; between architects and other members of the consultancy team; and between architects and artists.

Confirmed speakers include architects Jean Nouvel, Rafael Vinoly, Will Alsop, Odile Decq, Mike Davies, Roisin Henegen, Spencer de Grey, Ellen van Loon (OMA), Sunand Prasad; and artist Bruce McLean. Other names will be announced shortly. Oscar Niemeyer, who will be 100 in December 2007, will address the conference via video.

A programme of special architectural study tours to important buildings in and around Paris has been arranged for delegates. There will also be a series of exclusive evening receptions at some of the city’s most architectural venues including the newly - opened Cité de l''Architecture.

25 October 2007

At approximately 19:00 there will be a welcome reception at the Cite de l’Architecture & du Patrimonie. Europe’s largest new Architecture Centre is spectacular.
