Urban yet bucolic, this project rounds out the urban renewal of the Courghain district in Dunkirk’s suburbs. The venue is divided between the very city-oriented square of the same name and a watergang (a small Dutch-like canal). All the more so because the city’s urban planner called for facades on each of the surrounding streets and blocks on the square while the project only contains 57 social housing units.

The enclosed circular glass bar rests over a bell mouth spillway which allows water to enter from it’s entire perimeter, this water is taken, via submerged canals, upstream to the impounded lakes and nearby reservoirs.

In 2011, the Gaumont-Pathé group decided to restructure the existing building to improve the quality of its cinemas, as well as to properly address the needs and greeting of customers. The general objective of the group is to progressively renew the image of its movie theaters, often very urban and installed on magnificent sites but suffering from a sometimes dated image.

The goal is to make them into beautiful cultural spaces, lively in daytime as much as nighttime and flexible enough so that they can host a diversified program, mixing Film with other cultural events: the image of the Movie Theater in the City must be totally renewed.

Restaurant Le Clos Y in PARIS, France by Agence Dai Sugasawa

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Kuroiwa and Yoshitaka Ikeda in order to design their first european venue of Le Clos restaurants. Their first establishment just opened in Paris next to Montparnasse Tower.

Voluntarily sober and strict, the space imagined by Daï Sugasawa notified itself by a minimal decor in relation to the chefs’ philosophy and gastronomy. The space was designed to be clean and quiet canvas for the chefs’ creations. This attention to the chefs’ inovative process provides clients with a unique tasting experience.

ZAC Boucicaut, Lot C in Paris, France by Michel Guthmann Architecture & Urbanisme

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Article source: Michel Guthmann Architecture & Urbanisme

Problems and challenges

The site of the former Hôpital Boucicaut (Boucicaut Hospital) in Paris’s 15tharrondissement is an unusual enclave within a district that is otherwise quite diverse. The Hospital formed a uniform block in terms of use, organisation and architecture. The urban development project proposed by the sector’s town planner Paul Chemetov, maintains this notion of an internal uniformity, in contrast with the immediate surroundings. Very different styles of architecture exist in the district surrounding the sector, mainly dating from the 19th and 20th centuries. By contrast, the urban project proposes a rigorous organisation of blocks arranged together in a series of steady colours (no white concrete and a preference for terracotta) and natural materials, all falling within a sort of historic continuity that preserves the original residential character.

BOUNCING BRIDGE in Paris, France by Atelier Zündel Cristea

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Article source: Atelier Zündel Cristea


With the growth of « World Cities » in the 1990’s, the contemporary notion of the Urban Gathering was born. Its essential characteristic is the creation of a specific urban sense of time through a scheduled series of varied ephemeral events. This « event urbanism » exists as part of the increasing competition between capital cities, seeking to attract and maintain highly mobile professional classes and to satisfy more stable populations with novel practices of urban space.

STUDENT HALL OF RESIDENCE + FAMILY HOMES in PARIS, France by Babled Nouvet Reynaud Architectes

Street, entrances, depth: the genesis of a coherent spatial arrangement

The project has chosen to link the high density imposed by the depth of the plots to the framework created by the buildings retained on the street. The system of entrances, creating a flow into the existing buildings as well as through to the full depth of the block, is the point of departure for spaces that stretch into the far reaches of the site, the first link in a chain extending to create this spatial arrangement.

Herold – Social Housing100 in Paris, France by Jakob + Macfarlane

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Article source: Jakob + Macfarlane

In the context of the reconversion of the ancient site of the hospital Hérold, conceived by Philippe Madec in Paris 19th arrondissement, Jakob + MacFarlane establish/design three mineral forms standing free on a kind of slope triangular island planted with some trees. These three forms, grow like roots on portions of the territory that have been freed by the constraints of the site : protected trees, the ancient existing wall of the beltway, the size and prospect, the not buildable surfaces or the difference in height. Their shapes are at the same time the result of these constraints and a matrix structure generated by an irregular grid on the floor.
