Public Buildings

If telecommunication technologies' rapid evolution has changed working behavior by providing permanent accessibility anywhere, the emphasis of architectural and town planning design can therefore concentrate on the creation of SPACES TO LIVE. Social life becomes more abstract by the day and it is our role to provide places of EXCHANGE, for MIXED POPULATIONS AND USES where the brainstorming of public life can take place. These MEETING PLACES should be found at HOME, at WORK and in CITIES where "public spaces become external rooms".

In this case the clear identification of the occupant enabled the architects to draw on the image and prestige of the institution, at the same time providing optimal, day-to-day functionality. Six building sections were erected under the large iconic roofline, with the atria and gardens between them. Designed to be a living and communication space as well as a place of work, the structure includes offices, conference rooms, cafeteria, bar, print room, archive space and a crèche.
