The school

The ENSA Paris-Malaquais is a school of architecture in which scenography constitutes a specialty subject taught in close collaboration with outside institutions and professionals in the field.

The Ecole Nationale supérieure d’Architecture Paris-Malaquais, one of twenty national schools of architecture in France, is an open and international school, characterised by a diverse pedagogical program. Created in January 2001, it is located within the historical compound of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Beaux-Arts.

Presentation of the training

The ENSAPM offers a diploma of architecture comprising a first cycle (bachelor’s) and a post-graduate cycle (Master). For the latter, students have the option of choosing a Studio of Art Architecture Politics (AAP), within which exist the specialty “Stage spaces”. In this, students work on theatre programming within a logic of exchange, with teams from various theatre organisations playing the role of project manager. This course has the additional objective of participating in a modern reflection on the architecture of staging, as much in its urban, public, and technical dimensions as its more artistic, architectural and identity-based dimensions.
This course, taking place over 5 years, with specialisation in the 3rd year, seeks to push students beyond the abstractions of architectural studies, exposing them to the demands, questions and objectives of others than just their professors.
