European Food Safety Authority - New HQ

Parma
Italy

The building stands on a site made available by the Parma City Council, a triangle delimited by access roads, an inner ring-road and railway lines. The architecture directly addresses these contextual elements, evoking an imposing institutional building whose three facades are monumental in scale and announce a powerful new presence within Parma's urban landscape.

Strasbourg

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.
