10.01.20 Sejkko: Lonely Houses

Discovered on Instagram under the pseudonym Sejkko (@sejkko), the Portuguese photographer Manuel Pita immortalizes the isolated houses he meets during his wanderings in Europe, from his country of origin to Croatia via Turkey. Sometimes renovated, sometimes dilapidated, these small colorful houses evoke both the solitude of everyone and the nostalgic memory of the Home, Sweet Home of his childhood.

09.01.20 Chartier Dalix: University of Law-Paris I

In Paris, the trend is towards the renovation of disused military sites. While the Anyoji Beltrando agency is converting the Reuilly barracks (12th arrondissement) into housing, the Chartier Dalix teams are rehabilitating the Lourcine barracks (13th arrondissement) into an annex to the Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne law faculty. An ambitious restructuring which guarantees the conservation of the historic heritage and its adaptation to the current socio-economic challenges of the city.

07.01.20 Agence Chabanne: La Patinoire Michel Raffoux

After the ice rinks of Louviers (27) and Angers (49), the architecture and engineering agency Chabanne is building a contemporary ice rink for the Urban Community of Dunkirk (CUD). Located between land and sea in an old industrial port site called Môle 1, the Michel Raffoux ice rink is helping to revive this historic site. Faced with such an urban context, the Chabanne agency teams created sports equipment that is open to the outside.

06.01.20 Chak Kit: Hong Kong

Rather than capturing realistic images of Hong Kong, the young photographer Chak Kit immortalizes the magnetic energy of the Chinese megalopolis in purified snapshots on the border of abstraction. Become famous thanks to social networks, he poses a look of esthete on the urban landscape of Hong Kong and shares his colorful visions of the city on Instagram.

03.01.20 RAUM: Cultural Space of White Stones

At the heart of small towns, the village halls now enjoy real architectural treatments and reflections as practical as they are aesthetic. Proof of this is with the latest creation from the RAUM workshop in Nantes, which designs for the city of Saint-Jean-de-Boisseau (44) a multipurpose room a thousand places from the bland and classic buildings that usually characterize this type of program.

24.12.19 Pietri Architects: La Crique

The architectural agency Pietri Architects erects a set of 145 apartments in Marseille (13) on a natural site with lush vegetation. The complex, located at the foot of the Aigle mountain, owes its name, La Crique, to its geographical location. Bright white architecture that enhances the 9th arrondissement while integrating harmoniously with the surrounding nature.

19.12.19 Schnepp Renou: Architecture photography

The two young photographers, Morgane Renou and Simon Schnepp, have formed the Schnepp Renou duo since 2012. Specializing in architectural photography, the Franco-German duo captures urban landscapes around the world and magnifies them with an artistic mastery of photography. Zoom on an outstanding collective work.

17.12.19 Romain Laprade: Domestic Pool

From La Piscine by Jacques Deray to Swimming Pool by François Ozon, via The Swimmer by Frank Perry, the pool has often been a source of inspiration for the visual arts. Designed for Villa Noailles (83) in 2018, the photographic series "Domestic Pool" by Romain Laprade celebrates the dream pool of Alain Capeillères. Tart visuals that smell good in summer.

16.12.19 Event: Orleans Biennial # 2 - Our Lonely Years

Launch an Architecture Biennial, a risky bet? Difficult to say the opposite as the events of the genre flourish and fade at great speed. And yet, awaited at the turn, the Biennale of Orleans manages, one more year, to fare well. Placed under the sign of solitude, the event draws on the exceptional collection of the FRAC Center-Val de Loire and the limitless imagination of its curators, Abdelkader Damani and Luca Galofaro.
