After the first successful conference in Munich in 1987, the Commission of the European Communities has been organising its 2nd Conference on Architecture in Paris. It is part of the Community's development programme on solar energy. The use of solar energy in dwellings and buildings in general was actually the starting point of this conference and it still is a major part of it. But the development of solar energy has not only led to a better energy utilisation and a new type of comfort in our buildings; it just showed an example of the immense technological potential which still remains unexploited in modern architecture. The approach needed is multi-disciplinary: these conferences are meant as the forum where architects, scientists, engineers and industrialists get together. I express my hope that they can lead the way to an architecture stimulated by technology and a new start for technology developments at the service of that architecture. Wolfgang Palz Commission of the European Communities Brussels Suite a la premiere conference reussie de Munich en 1987, la Commission des Communautes Europeennes a organise sa 2e Conference de l'Architecture a Paris. Elle fait partie du programme communautaire de developpement de l'energie solaire.
