Fouquet’s Barrière Hotel – added 2 Oct 2012
A set of seven buildings including real and pastiche Haussmannian styles, as well as a building dating from the 1970’s, formed a nearly complete urban block in the Triangle d’or (the corner of the Champs-Elysées and the Avenue Georges V). The restaurant Le Fouquet’s is the flagship property of the Barrière company. The goal was to unify these disparate elements and to make it the next parisian “Palace”, thus establishing a strong new image.

Ecole Maternelle Paris – 30 May 2012
In the Olympiades quarter, the reconstructed kindergarten stands out like a gleaming toy amidst the neighbouring towers and blocks. It is part of the re-evaluation of a dense, functional and mixed urban planning project built in the 1960s and 70s.

Design: Studio Bednarski Architects

Ecole Bailly
The school complex of Bailly is situated on a changing territory and is located on the starting point of the reconstruction of the scale of the district. The school complex is aligned on the rue de Bailly like a “building wall” on one level which grows hollow and inflects to form the esplanade for the entrance.

The completion of a building in the planning project of Saclay Paris is a unique opportunity to be one of the markers of the future center of excellence established on the plateau. The uniqueness of the site, and it’s present and future characteristics, make it an interesting emerging area

Eiffel Tower History : most famous structure in Paris, heroic iron architecture
Inauguration of the tower occurred in 1889. The opening of the World Fair took place in 1889: the lifts of the tower were not yet ready. Between the 15th and the 21st of May, 29,922 persons climbed the 1,792 steps to the summit.

The design is based on a generative script, creating branches out of the primary structure of the tower. Inspired by the structural concept of Eiffel of three-dimensional cross bracing beams, the script unfolds along curved lines the “DNA” of the tower.

Intriguing building that plays games with layers of translucent screens to ask what is building and what is not? Existing mature trees on the site, south of the centre of Paris, are imaginatively integrated.
