Anne de Bretagne secondary school in Saint-Herblain, France by Philippe Gazeau

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Article source: Philippe Gazeau

West of Nantes, the new Collège Anne de Bretagne secondary school at St-Herblain stands out in the location as a feature linking a town park, various neighboring public utilities and the Loire valley landscape. The project fits into the site through an irregular base dressed in timber powerfully set into the slightly sloping land. This rough ground floor bears a much simpler looping figure that tapers on the upper floor housing the classrooms. The base blends in with the immediate vicinity while the upstairs area looks out over the landscape further afield.

Lycée Neslon Mandela Secondary School in Paris, France by Philippe Gazeau

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Article source: Philippe Gazeau

Set on the Etampes plateau with a view as far as the eye can see across the natural landscape and farmland, the new Lycée d’Etampes secondary school is the first building in the built-up Paris area visible from the Beauce plain.
The building stands on the boundary between the two regions and itself has that dual status as a kind of built-up landscape, despite its large scale.
