A CENTER FOR ARCHITECTURAL PRODUCTION AND EXCHANGE: DESIGNING AN IN-CITY CAMPUS FOR A SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE IN PARIS

AN ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL WITHIN THE URBAN PLATFORM

The School of Architecture for ENSAPLV is expected to create a new centrality in mutual relation with its new district as well as a new pole for architectural education. The site works as an interface in between the Parc de La Vilette and the surrrounding housing environment. The project aims to emphasize the public face of the architecture school as a tool for the architectural education. It creates a continuous structure and direct relation with the Parc de La Vilette which is an important public space creating the context. The building itself forms an urban platform which contains public spaces underneath. The platfrom begins from the Parc de La Vilette comes to the canal side and joins the landcsape. In between the building form open spaces and closed spaces are created which have welcoming features.
