Exhibition: Chambord, 1519-2019

Utopia at work

The exhibition entitled Utopia at work has been placed under the double commissionership of the french architect Dominique Perrault and the french philosopher Ronald Schaer. It will constitute one the most important exhibitions in France scheduled for 2019. It will be the first exhibition ever presented in Chambord to delve into the architecture of the ch√Ęteau and the direct involvement of Leonardo da Vinci in the elaboration of the original plans.

It will explore the genesis of Chambord and lend credence to the hypothesis of Leonardo as architect. The exhibition will comprise two sections, the first dedicated to the history of the construction of Chambord, and the second devoted to the imagining of an incomplete Chambord, of which the construction would be pursued during the 21st century.
