And if we were opening the ground to make architecture?


Inspired by the mysterious concept of Dominique Perrault, the realization of an architecture " Groundscape " will allow to reveal the unusual story of a place, where the ground possesses several mysteries.


The ambition carried by this work is then to bring a reflection on the influence which exercise the geological processes on the project of architecture by developing a lexicon which will report several possibilities of forms and organizations. By associating for example strata (sedimentation), breaches and geological faults (fracture), valleys (erosion), cavities (excavation) with constructive principles, the objective will be to optimize the potential of the ground in terms of features and of experiences.


I actualy made some models to discover various configurations and possible atmospheres. On the scale of the landscape, the ground and the architecture make only one. By lifting and by digging under this ''skin'', we reveal new spaces and new forms of landscapes. The secrets of the ground are brought to the light. The architecture becomes a device to connect human and nature.
