The restructuring and extension to the Lognes site for the Ministry of the Interior aims to make it the main Grand Paris training center.
A “blue” gallery has been created that acts as the project’s backbone and provides the distribution needed for the restructured buildings and extensions. It permits a separation between visitor, trainee and personnel movements and ensures the readability of the centre, with administrative premises to the south and training premises to the north.

The training facilities of the Santiago Fire brigade are located in the suburban area of the Metropolitan Region, where the volunteer firefighters receive special training, as well as carrying out sports and other recreational activities.
The first variable facing the project was the climate, since the place has sparse vegetation and most training activities take place outdoors, where shade was an essential and scarce commodity

Vellore House hosts twenty abandoned and parentless children in support to a special care program that follows deprived children from early childhood and beyond in education and training. The project layout was defined through a participative process that has allowed to solve the main issues of this special family: children feel protected and free to play, while the mummy can watch them confidently. Functions are divided into five volumes arranged in order to form two little courtyards. In the center, under a wide flat roof, the dining and gathering space can be completely opened up on two sides.

The plot is in the middle of one of the most humid valleys of northern Navarre. A valley of gentle but sturdy hills, where the green pasture and oak trees configure a landscape of strong character, whose color changes with the seasons. A valley dotted with a system of small and relatively closely-woven urban cores, configured in an apparently random way. The buildings are formed of large unitary and isolated volumes that seem to touch, but that in truth compete with one another to show their bold architectural character. A boldness that draws on the climate conditions, but also on the production system – stockbreeding –, which in past times forced to accommodate in one same house people and animals. A boldness that is particularly evident in the roof, whose role is to bring together all the different contents. Boldness, in the end, of ‘Navarre’s buildings’. This is the context for an elite equestrian center specialized in dressage and with boarding stalls for horses: one of the strongest and most sophisticated forces created by nature.

On a site covering nearly seven hectares in the Cité Descartes cluster in Marne-la-Vallée lies the Pôle Scientifique et Technique Paris-Est (PST) which has been baptised the Espace Bienvenüe in memory of Fulgance Bienvenüe, inspector general of the Ponts et Chaussées engineering school and father of the Parisian metro system. The space completes the Cité Descartes that has been incorporated into this new town and meets the needs of the programme imposed by the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable development and Energy. Its aim is to group together the Ministry’s training and research facilities on the Marne-la-Vallée site and create a centre of excellence focussed on the sustainable city.

The first indications that something special sits with Mildura Senior Secondary College can be seen from the surrounding streets where glimpses of a brightly coloured form can be caught between trees. Drawing on references of the Australian shearers shed in its form and layout, activity flows around a central volume. This nod to traditional industries is complemented with the centres use of modern materials along with bold statements in its forms and colours that recognises a continued nature of innovation and change within industry.
