« Le propre de tout être devenu Humain est sa conscience de l’Autre. »
At architectesassoc+, we believe architecture requires an ethic, a responsible commitment to the community.
Indeed our environment, staging our engaged interactions, is mutating: both literally and figuratively. Half of the Earth’s inhabitants lives in urban settings today, yet so far we cannot offer a credible solution to the sheer scale of the situation. It is therefore paramount that our think modes integrate this context to its full extent _ and in doing so address the diverse echelons wherein architects and urban planners work hand in hand. Thus a city becomes a collective body of work in which our fundamental human right to live together with dignity notwithstanding our differences is upheld, where rules are necessary but do not constitute a guaranty of success, and where we are once again put face to face with real people and their real capacity for creating real things _ for getting things done.
This is reflected in the the studio’s team’s broad outlook, essentially tapping into the wealth of exchanges encouraged between all players throughout the construction process _ and equally, into each actor’s respective competencies.
Composed of professionals who employ their talents and skills to bring to life novel, flexible and concrete visions in architecture, architectesassoc+ counts on their hands-on experience. Concomitantly, collaborations with other essential players of the building process are encouraged to prosper, with engineers, builders, urbanists, scenographers, artists, photographers, etc, thereby embracing the complexity and ambiguity of each project undertaken.
