Global Warming Ready,2006 Global Warming Readyis a critical fiction offering a post-capitalist vision of the tower-type object. The radical accumulation of program and the structural exaggeration turn this tower into a billboard of itself.

Now Better Than New,2008, Le Havre Biennal, incollaboration with Mathieu Mercier. On Auguste Perret square, facing the Oscar Niemeyer volcano, seven containers in a modern white are piled high as an echo to the city of Le Havres brutalist architecture. As the Biennal epicenter,Now Better Than Newaccommodates a temporary reception, meeting room and bookshop.

Plus fort que moi,2006 Mixing vocabularies from both italian avant-gardes and Minimal Art, Plus fort que moiI revisits ergonomic seats from the 90s, dedicated to the service industries production line subordinates. Its weak affordance forces the user to figure out the position to take.

I am a monument,2006 This update of the Robert Venturi drawing Sketch Proposal for a Monument is a request to quote the siteof knowledge production, the possibility of objectivising the identity base of architectural production.

Les Communauts de lInstant,2009, Centre Pompidou, Point Ephmre & La Java, Paris This project aims at mapping the nocturnal and party circuit communities. Upon making the choice to pose by a flag, each individual chooses a selective, temporary and contractual belonging to a community. Photos published on social networks quickly spread through avatar portraits and are widely commented. Here architecture is reduced to a media apparatus. It functions as a means of identity among small urban cliques.

Tour Nuage,2009 A block of architecture without attribute serving a romantic gesture.

Shn, 2006 This stair-house is a transfiguration of the architects house as an apparatus to turn daily life into the spectacular.Shn enables its users to live on a slope in a flat terrain.

Panorama,2007, XXe arrondissement, Paris Panoramais the rooftop extension of a house designed as a residence and workshop for Mathieu Mercier. Conceived as the dynamic centre of various information, relational and technical networks,Panoramais a social performance space perched on the surrounding walls of an enclosed sky garden.

Models,2008, Galerie 22, Toulouse / Revue Poli, France TheModelsserie is a survey of the typical characters who live in architectural models. Out of their context, the politics of representation which shape these standard objects appear.

Scene of Two,2010, 72, Forest Road, London E8, Private client Located on a narrow 45 m2 plot of land,Scene of Twois a house for two inhabitants. The parallelogram-shaped plan and the height allow its integration in the victorian typology of the street. A spiral staircase whose axis is moved in a corner organizes the whole house. The domestic functions are set on a succession of trays, alternately stairs, furniture, floors, or roof-terrace.Scene of Twois a house without wall, an interior volume in a row where settlements are edicted following the topography of its floor.

Group Form,2010. Design culinaire: Julie Rothhahn, Centre Pompidou-Metz This summer restaurant for the Centre Pompidou-Metz is envisioned as a weak and diffuse micro-urbanism caught in the crowds mouvements. It aims at offering a continuous experience from the objects scale to the space and city scales. The traditional restaurant is deconstructed through a homothetic relationship between groups, tables and spaces. This apparatus wants to reveal the contradictions of the meal ceremony, both public and private, intimate and sociable.

Grandi Bianchi,2011, in collaboration with Bernard Dubois, Galerie Balice Hertling, Paris This ensemble of interior devices with an inherent genetic link is the central piece of the refurbishment of the gallery. An elementary storage unit, four voids in a block, is affected to comply with types and formats of furniture, from one scale to an other, until the limits of a room. Logics of formal manipulation specic to digital modelling are applied to the primitive logic of hard marble assembly, that undergoes stretchings and constrictions. The variation in marble thicknesses re-veals the amalgam behind the design of the object. 354 photographers

Le Moulin,2010, BET: Turnbull Associs, Galleria Continua, Boissy-le-Chtel This former paper mill is going to be converted into an exceptional 27000m2 art centre in the heart of the Parisian countryside. Its architectural qualities arise from the original mix of buildings representing different times and typologies. It is this mix that gives the site its unique identity, and the architectural project aims to maintain this dynamic nature. Small scale, elementary architectural objects, such as windows, stairs, railings, flirt with existing features to give them a new lease of life, while several new buildings are added to complete this centre of excellence.
