The Richelieu Laboratory is a platform for artists, architects and curators to discuss the role of art and architecture in a historic and rural setting. In dialogue with the local community a group of artists and architects explored the French 17th century model town of Richelieu to scope out a biennale of art and architecture.
This event is a collaboration between the Whitechapel Gallery, the Architectural Association, the British Council and the town of Richelieu.
