Jacques Ferrier Architecture News
We are delighted to announce the merger of Jacques Ferrier Architecture and Sensual City Studio.
After almost 10 years of close collaboration we have decided to formalise our architecture and research partnership in a new vehicle, Ferrier Marchetti Studio, with a unique approach to sustainable, holistic urbanism.
● Together, we believe we will be even better placed to help our clients with the challenges they face in rapidly developing cities, whilst ensuring that projects are underpinned by a strongly humanistic philosophy.
● The new Ferrier Marchetti Studio website outlines the studio’s ethos and some of the themes that inform the work, as well as showcasing some of the most significant joint projects.
Urban Oasis in Central Shanghai
Ferrier Marchetti Studio (FMS) has completed its radical reimagining of a densely urban site on Shanghai’s busiest intersection, in the Xujiahui district. T20 combines office, civic, commercial and cultural space with elevated planted pedestrian walkways above the street, creating an urban oasis in the centre of this major transport intersection. The green ribbons of public walkways extend to connect the surrounding streets and buildings, creating platforms from which to escape the tumult, and observe the dynamic scene below.

Inventing an Architecture of Resonance
On September 18, FMS celebrates the opening of ‘Entre-deux : Ferrier Marchetti Studio, une architecture de la résonance’ at the Design Centre of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). This public exhibition addresses the urgent need to radically rethink the role of architecture and technology in the urban realm. It is a call to put people, and their daily experiences at the heart of the design process, to give way to the sensual city. As the philosopher Hartmut Rosa wrote in Resonance: “Everything in life depends on the quality of our relationship to the world.” The exhibition runs from September 18 – October 27.

Taking the Global Stage
On 6 December, Jacques Ferrier and Pauline Marchetti take to the main stage at the World Architecture Festival (WAF) to deliver a lecture on « Space Between », focussing on their forward-looking, humanistic and sensitive approach to the city and architecture. They join a line-up of world-renowned architects, who over the course of the festival will address the most critical challenges facing the architecture and design industry today. The global festival takes place in Amsterdam 4-6 December, on the theme of FLOW.
