Studio BOLOZ, in collaboration with Manifesto, Cyril Delhomme, and Maison Solide, has unveiled a new outdoor exhibition at Hôtel-Dieu in Paris. This exhibition aims to showcase the continuous transformation that has characterized the historic hospital for over a century.

The courtyard of Hôtel-Dieu has been transformed with modern and colorful modular elements, designed to contrast with the monumental architecture of the building. These geometric modules serve various functions, including seating and contemplation points, and each one features informational boards that detail the rich history of the site.

The exhibition begins at the entrance hall, where visitors are welcomed by symbolic illustrations that represent the past, present, and future of Hôtel-Dieu. The colorful graphics echo the stained glass of the nearby Notre-Dame cathedral, creating a cohesive experience that brings together these two Parisian landmarks. The courtyard installation is dedicated to all users of Hôtel-Dieu, including staff, patients, caregivers, and start-ups from the innovation and health sector.

The exhibition was inaugurated on September 16th during the European Heritage Days and will be on display for two years. Hôtel-Dieu, located on Île de la Cité, has a long history as the oldest hospital in Paris and is situated near the iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral. Despite its many changes, including expansions, reconstructions, and fires, Hôtel-Dieu remains an important healthcare facility and a hub for medical research and innovation.

The ‘Mediation’ exhibition at Hôtel-Dieu is a testament to the hospital’s ability to adapt to the needs of a changing society and advances in medical science. The project, developed and financed by APHP and Novaxia, celebrates the history and future of this historic landmark in the heart of Paris.
