ARCHsharing is a non-profit NGO founded in 2016 by two French students in architecture.
"We created this association during our last student year in the Architecture school of Marseille. We created it after we participated to some competitions and realized that one aspect was missing: pedagogy.
Thus, we got specialized in architectural competition for students and young architects. We propose an alternative to standard architectural competitions, by adding more pedagogy and a better diffusion of the students’ ideas.
We commit to send each participant the jury members comments, so that they can have a feedback on their work. After each competition, we will publish a book that aims at sharing and spreading students’ worldwide ideas and to approach the main theme of the competition.
ARCHsharing is composed by architects and students, the association is a way for its members to participate to the architectural debate, while encouraging the apprenticeship of his participants".
