Design, construction, financing, operation, maintenance and service delivery for a group of buildings making up the AgroParisTech-INRA Campus in Paris Saclay.

These buildings offer a malleable, flexible, adaptable environment for the double life of the researcher: individual work requiring great concentration on the one hand, and on the other, conditions for interactions, exchange and engagement with the scientific community that is constantly evolving. This paradigm is the foundation for the architectural concepts of individual well-being and group interaction. The research buildings highlight this question of use precisely, how to inhabit and live together, to open out onto the garden and the world, and the possibility to imagine singular spaces dedicated to the specific excellence of one’s research work. Research encourages collaboration and exchange as necessity: excellence is created by all of these entities interacting in a fertile serendipity.

Hybrid identity

The symbolism of rhythms, repetitions, and alliances of facades affirms the identity of the AgroParisTech-INRA campus: uniqueness is expressed through compact brick volumes, with large openings on the landscape, illustrating the window on others, on the world.
