The Pavilions 2013 by Festival des Architectures Vives
April 26th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal
Since the 2011 edition, we have implemented the realization a FAV’s Pavilion. This pavilion allows the reception and the diffusion of public informations about the festival. It is also the starting point of the course of the festival, a meeting place and forum for all visitors. Taking place strategically in the heart of the city, for the 8th Edition two pavilions will be made. The first will be in the usual courtyard of the CCIT Montpellier, Hotel Saint Come and the second will be in front of the new Office of Tourism in the city of La Grande Motte.
For the year 2013, we wanted to entrust the realization of two buildings with two young architects graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier and settled in the Languedoc Roussillon.
Indeed, Robin Juzon will realize the Pavilion in Montpellier and David Hamerman will realize the pavilion in La Grande Motte.

Their agency is trying to take the time to deal with projects in every detail to produce quality architecture that is aligned with the values they carry. Dual jurisdiction architect engineer offers them greater freedom and autonomy in real projects they undertake. In 2007 as part of his studies, Robin met Gilles Perraudin, architect, with whom he reinforces his taste for Simple Architecture.
The same year, he participated in the contest CIMBETON, for which he was awarded the engineering. Me his travels influence his daily work, notably in Japan, where he discovered a refined and minimalist architecture featuring raw materials. The realization of the pavilion give to him the opportunity to express the architecture of simplicity with which he is still sensitive.
La Grande Motte Pavilion by David Hamerman Architect
David Hamerman graduated as a DPLG architect in 2000 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier (ENSAM) and has a postgraduate DEA degree in landscape architecture from the Institut d’Architecture de Genève in Switzerland (2002).
Different journeys and destinations confronted him with other points of view and references, and he worked as an architect and landscape architect in Geneva and New York. In 2005 he founded the workshop Architectures&Paysages in Montpellier.
The ambition of A&P lies primarily in the realization of projects that tend to reconcile two conceptual platforms, being architecture and landscape. Sun, shadow, light, materiality and the relationship inside/outside are the first stimuli that allow him to elaborate every new design-question. Since 2009, he teaches studio at the ENSAM.
