The consciousness of the ground and the becoming-architecture of the resources it contains, the necessary balance between belonging to a context and the autonomy of the form, the deployment of the materials and the order of their assembly, the necessity of the newness in regard to the most significant theoretical canons of the discipline, are some of the vectors that characterize our production.

The office was created in 2009 by Thibaut Barrault and Cyril Pressacco. Its activity is shared between urban projects and metropolitan strategies, buildings’ conception and construction, research and teaching. Today, fifteen collaborators organise the necessary interactions between subjects and various scales, so as to build an engaged and current work.
