Cantabrians can get a taste of modern Parisian architecture without catching a flight.

The Architecture=Sustainable exhibition, organised by the Alliance Francais in Christchurch and being held at the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, showcases 30 architectural projects in the Paris area and 80 other buildings in Europe to explore the idea of sustainability in urban design.

Free public seminars will be held on sustainable architecture, energy-efficient buildings and solar energy.

Speakers include French architect Edouard Francois, who designed The Building that Grows in Montpellier in southern France and the Flower Tower in Paris.

The exhibition opened yesterday and will finish on November 3, although some of the seminars will be held afterwards.
