Biscornet Paris – 26 Feb 2013
Is there an architect who has not dreamed of designing a building for the Biscornet site, which lay abandoned for so long? Its location is truly spectacular: slightly set back from the Place de la Bastille, it lies where the rue de Lyon and the road running along the canal basin meet; on one side you have a perspective towards the Gare de Lyon, on the other a view of the Bassin de l’Arsenal.

Student Apartments Paris – 19 Feb 2013
The project is located on a long and very narrow site, on the edge of Parc La Vilette in Paris’s 19th district, within an urban development done by Reichen & Robert architects. On the northeast, new Paris tram route is passing along the site. The site is bordering with tram garage on the southwest, above which is a football field. The first 3 floors of the housing will inevitably share the wall with the tram garage.

70°SUD Boulogne-Billancourt – 27 Mar 2012
This project, for which the competition occurred in 2008, is the result of a complex transformation process in the city along with a precise economic context.
Located on the former site of the Renault factories in Boulogne-Billancourt, the concerned project is part of the Trapèze Ouest, one of the sector of the operation Ile Seguin-Rives de Seine, amongst the most important emerging centres in Ile-de-France.

Arc de Triomphe / Triumphal Arch, Paris VIIIIe (Paris XVIe)
Jean François Thérèse Chalgrin, Architect; Guillaume Abel Blouet, Architect
Completed by Blouet, following the death of Chalgrin in 1811, the Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon to celebrate victory at Austerlitz. It is the world´s largest triumphal arch and influenced the later La Grande Arche further along this formal urban axis of the Étoile. More a national monument than significant piece of architecture.

Beaugrenelle Shopping Centre – 17 Feb 2012
In today’s increasingly competitive environment, the architecture of shopping malls has come to play a fundamental role in their commercial success. Architecture can distinguish the shopping environment to create a sense of specificity, of differentiation. Space can become a brand.
