Library in Anzin, France by Dominique Coulon & Associés

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Article source:  Dominique Coulon & Associés

The building reveals its preciousness at first sight.  Its pure, sophisticated geometry situates it as a public building.  The deliberate areas of transparency reveal its content.  The reading rooms present the building to the town in the manner of an invitation.  The multimedia library is covered with large white veils that reflect the light.

ANT – Monochrome Collage in Paris, France by WY-TO architects

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Article source: WY-TO architects

Situated beneath the roof of a 19th century building, Antoine’s apartment is a specimen from a bygone era. The supporting structure has shifted, and the walls are no longer perpendicular to the floor, which, in turn, is uneven and suffers multiple irregularities.

CLO – REFLECTION, SEQUENCE AND CONTINUITY in Paris, France by WY-TO architects

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

Article source: WY-TO architects

WY-TO’s proposal focuses on leveraging the view and natural light that enters from the north. The objective is to create a different space for each usage whilst at the same time maintaining visual continuity. To do so, storage space and bathrooms are re-organised behind a full-height technical fat wall stretching from one end of the flat to the other, from the entrance to the most
intimate part. This additional technical thickness is covered with full-height vertical aluminium structure according to a cutting-edge graphic layout. The aluminium work integrates seamlessly with the architecture of the flat, adding a vertical rhythm.

Urban Collage in Champigny-sur-Marne, France by Maison Edouard François

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Article source: Maison Edouard François

At Champigny-sur-Marne, respect of the context and the refusal to interpret it led us to take a unique position. The site is a grand ensemble that was built in the 1970’s : a large zone of housing filled with towers and multi-story housing blocks near the old town center. The program asked for an urban renewal plan based on a new town center with shops and housing.

Lot 2, Jardins de la Lironde in Montpellier, France by Farshid Moussavi Architecture

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Article source: Farshid Moussavi Architecture

The City of Montpellier intends to stimulate and encourage architectural innovation through the construction of twelve architectural “Follies” on its brownfield sites. In the eighteenth century, local aristocrats and bourgeoisie commissioned architects to build a number of elegant homes, les Folies Montpelliéraines, on the outskirts of the city. These buildings, including the castles of Flaugergues, de la Mogère or de la Mosson, marked the architectural history of the city and are still an integral part of its identity. Three centuries later, the City of Montpellier seeks to continue this tradition of innovative architecture. The residential complex for Lot M2 is the first of the twelve follies to be built.

INRA Research Laboratories in Nancy, France by Tectoniques Architects

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Tectoniques Architects

The Champenoux site in the Lorraine region is one of the five sites of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (National Agronomic Research Institute) in France. Located in the immense forest of Amance, it has added a new laboratories and offices building on the existing site. These high-level technical research centres host French and foreign researchers who work together to study the ecology and genomics of forests. Due to its history and its geographical position, the INRA centre in Nancy has always been largely devoted to the study of the forest and its products (of which timber is the most important). Five hundred people study subjects from the genome to the territory, including the functioning of trees and of ecosystems, as well as the forestry economy and the production of biomass.

LaM – Lille Museum of Modern, Contemporary and Outsider Art in Villeneuve d’Ascq, France by Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

The project concerns the refurbishment and the extension of the Lille Modern Art Museum in a magnificent park at Villeneuve d’Ascq. The existing building, designed by Roland Simounet in 1983, is already on the Historic monuments list. The project aims at building up the museum as a continuous and fluid entity, this by adding new galleries dedicated to a collection of Art Brut works, from a travelling movement that extrapolates existing spaces. A complete refurbishment of the existing building was next required, some parts were very worn.
