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.

Building “image”, symbolic and copy, the project is in its form and purpose, to meet these requirements : the visitor should immediately understand the nature, the DNA, of the building. Emblematic bio climatic elements serve to the project and not the reverse.
They shape the project as well as the traditional components (wall, etc. roof). 3 requirements, 3 heights, 1 main entrance: it is the pragmatic application of the combined program bio climatic approach that guides the design of the project.

A place and not a building
The “grands projects” of the President of the Republic that have been completed up to date are all closely associated with a site, and a history -in a word, a place with a name. The National Library of France is built on a stretch of industrial waste land on the banks of the Seine in the East End of Paris. It represents the starting- point for a complete reconstruction of this entire sector of the 13th district. The institution encompasses within it an element of grandiosity and an element of generosity. If we refer to the urban history of the great monuments which have been the fundamental signs of the city’s thrust toward new territory, the greatest gift that it is possible to give to Paris consists, today, in offering space, and emptiness – in a word, a place that is open, free, and stirring. Accordingly, the enormous building, which is envisaged with architectural emphasis and contentions by way of back-up, is transformed into a project that involves the void. Proposing as it does to the History of France a focus on immateriality and non-ostentation, this is an absolute luxury in thet city. It is this context which engenders the concept of the project.

Kengo Kuma & Associates won the first prize for the competition “Saint-Denis Pleyel Emblematic Train Station” in Saint-Denis, France.
The train station will be the first stone of a future global urban project in the site of Saint-Denis Pleyel. It will enable the site and the city to increase its metropolitan scale significantly. The project is designed as a unique opportunity to open up the district by connecting the two sides of the city over a huge railway network of the Parisian North station. The station becomes an extension of the public spaces on many levels. Multiple levels continue in spiral, so the station functions as a complex that brings in streets in vertical layer. Steel frames that evoke rail tracks are used in the curtain wall and many other parts of the structure, to emphasize the passage of time and history. This approach will make people be aware that the station is theirs and give them pleasant passing-by every day, connected with the network of the city.

There is now a tower overlooking the countryside in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, at Gruaud Larose. This is 21 metres tall, has an overhang, and is built in a harmonious style with right angles. It appears enigmatic when seen from afar.
While it was being built, some people said that that this would be tallest palombière (wood pigeon hunting hide) in the Médoc…

The fundamental idea of this project lies at the exact intersection of architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture. We directly considered the urban character of this project as a crucial point, in light of the scale and the impact of the intervention on the surrounding area in future. This project represents the exceptional opportunity to delineate a very special identity. An identity that incorporates concepts like ecologic engagement, energy conservation, passive construction, community interests, social mixture, awareness of the qualities of the landscape, water resource management and preservation of biodiversity along with immutable concepts such as beauty, attractiveness, allurement, atmosphere and poetry.
