Paris Architects – Architect Listings

This page contains a selection of major Parisian architects, with links to individual practice pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key Paris Architects, but additions are always welcome. The focus is on contemporary architects in Paris but information on traditional architecture studios is also welcome.

The most celebrated Parisian architect from the past is Le Corbusier, though of course Soufflot, Garnier, Labrouste and Chareau are world-famous too. Currently the most notable architecture practices are Jean Nouvel, Atelier d’architecture Christian de Portzamparc and Lacaton + Vassal

Architects among Paris attack victims
Amine Ibnolmobarak (Benmbarek), 28, Morocco, was with his wife, Maya, at the terrace of the Carillon bar when gunmen opened fire, reports The Guardian. She was shot three times and is in a critical condition in hospital, according to CNN and tributes on Facebook.

Born in Rabat, Ibnolmobarak – named in some reports as Benmbarek – was an architect and teacher at the ENSA Paris-Malaquais architecture school, from which he graduated in 2012 after an architectural study on the pilgrimage to Mecca.

Also killed was a German man, 28, who worked at the Paris office of Italian architect Renzo Piano (RPBW). A press officer for the company told The Guardian the man, who has not been named, was eating with two colleagues at the Cambodian restaurant targeted by gunmen. A message on the architecture practice’s phone said the office was closed Monday because one of its associates was killed in the Paris attacks.

Quentin Mourier, 29, France, was an architect at Atelier Grand Paris and was known within the urban farming community in France, and Project Vergers Urbains announced his death. He had been at the concert at the Bataclan.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims, and with the people of Paris and citizens of France. We also are thinking of those who are critically ill, wishing them positive recovery.
