Ten Fellows gathered in France to celebrate the program.

This was a response to Fellows’s desire for having an opportunity to learn from each other’s current projects and network wih the new Fellows and to exchange ideas on the problems faced in the architectural field.

Thanks to Didier Repellin (ACMH, IGMH), first days great supporter of the RMHF program and to Pierre-Antoine Gatier (1991 RMH Fellow), the Alumni visited several sites in Paris and Lyon. For instance, l’Opera Garnier or La Tourette, the Le Corbusier convent.
The RMHF Association was created, and the decision of meeting in the future every other year in France and the USA taken.
