“Just like the other European capitals such as Rome, Venice, or Barcelona, Paris risks to become a city museum. The increase of tourists in the French Capital causes panic and also leads to a gradual decentralization from the Parisians.
Paris has the largest concentration in m² of museums in the world, nearly 120 museums in total, with many urban areas which tend to be transformed into living conservatories.

The GVB site is named after the three avenues that surround it: avenue Berthelot, route de Vienne and rue Garibaldi. This 1.7-hectare triangle of former industrial wasteland occupies a highly strategic location within the Lyon metropolitan area. It is situated in an urban area undergoing a profound transformation and developing at a rapid rate, in close proximity to two major development projects: the Sergent Blandan park and the rue Garibaldi, which has been partly modified.

The Early Childhood Center in Autun is something of an architectural exception in terms of the production of the agency Tectoniques. A single-storey right-angle building, topped off with a broad, iridescent, reflective cap, it is a surprising presence in the surrounding environment and frames, in a playful and joyful manner, an urban landscape which itself is poorly established.

Our project integrates into its surroundings by respecting the urban fabric and existing buildings listed on the register of historic monuments. The use of the same type of stone, the preservation of existing buildings and respect for alignments all give the building an almost discreet character.
At the same time, the project establishes a strong identity, with the prayer hall and minaret recessed from the street.
The minaret and prayer hall are clad in white stone, symbolizing purity.

The Pushed Slab is located between two completely different urban grids: the dense city fabric of blocks and streets in the North and the loose urban fabric in the south with its clear defined and straightforward infrastructure. The design is based on the requested office program and the energy requirements. The project combines proven energy efficiency technologies with individual office floors and outside spaces such as patios, balconies and a garden. The building is highly flexible offering three cores and a central lobby; it can be rented out to one or various tenants without structural changes.

The Hoche ecodistrict is rising from the ground on old industrial sites. It has to mediate between the scale of the Chemin-de-l’Ile park and the A14 motorway that cuts through it, and the far smaller scale of an area of detached houses dating back to the 1930s. The two plots selected for the development are a good illustration of the challenge. The housing is divided into housing blocks that are look onto public space and face the eight-storey towers between them and the motorway and a square, but in the centre of the block are houses of the same dimensions as the existing detached houses.

La belle equipe is in an Art Nouveau building’s heart, classified as Historic Monument. This Thaï boxing hall, created by two friends and old champions, doesn’t look like all boxing gyms. Remy & Julien had the desire to create a place different as the traditional gyms. A unique and friendly place, where the exchange is the heart of the project.
