The “En Vie – Alive” exhibition created by leading designers, architects and artists showcases the bioengineered world, the invention starting to happen on our eyes.

Hosted by Espace Fondation EDF in Paris and curated by Carole Collet, the “En Vie – Alive” boldly encourages its viewers to imagine a world where biological fabrication replaces traditional manufacture, plants grow products and bacteria is genetically re-programmed to biofacture new materials, artefacts, energy or medicine.
