Their agency is trying to take the time to deal with projects in every detail to produce quality architecture that is aligned with the values they carry. Dual jurisdiction architect engineer offers them greater freedom and autonomy in real projects they undertake. In 2007 as part of his studies, Robin met Gilles Perraudin, architect, with whom he reinforces his taste for Simple Architecture. The same year, he participated in the contest CIMBETON, for which he was awarded the engineering. Me his travels influence his daily work, notably in Japan, where he discovered a refined and minimalist architecture featuring raw materials. The realization of the pavilion gives to him the opportunity to express the architecture of simplicity with which he is still sensitive.

The pavilion:
The pavilion, of simple geometric shape, was achieved with the aid of wooden panels.
With the massive and opaque origin, the panels are similar to thin sheets of wood embedded into each other. Thus, the pavilion proved sometimes transparent and sometimes opaque depending on the angle preferred by the visitor.

The Pavilions 2013
Since the 2011 edition, we have implemented the realization a FAV’s Pavilion. This pavilion allows the reception and the diffusion of public information about the festival. It is also the starting point of the course of the festival, a meeting place and forum for all visitors. Taking place strategically in the heart of the city, for the 8th Edition two pavilions have been made. The first was in the usual courtyard of the CCIT Montpellier, Hotel Saint Come and the second was in front of the new Office of Tourism in the city of La Grande Motte.

For the year 2013, we wanted to entrust the realization of two buildings with two young architects graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier and settled in the Languedoc Roussillon.

Indeed, Robin Juzon realized the Pavilion in Montpellier and David Hamerman realized the pavilion in La Grande Motte.
