Groupe scolaire Lucie Aubrac / by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

The school is distinguished by its spatial organization and design of the facades of their surroundings. The free form differentiates the building from its environnement of rigid social housing characterizing the area ‘Province de France’ in Nanterre. There is a relationship point of view (a view relation) with the Paris business district La Défense. The highly frequented, Route Nationale 314 runs west to the school building.

The school complex is organized around two courtyards that offer children different outdoor areas. The yard of the kindergarten was designed as a square, the courtyard of the elementary school as a trapeze. In the south, the campus has been completed by the gym. To the east is the ‘Centre de Loisirs’, a day home for in France generally established full-day school.

Institute Of Marine Genomics / by Barré-Lambot Architectes

The quality of the site, both symbolic and architectural, leads us to propose a building organized around an interior garden ; while preserving the site unity.
Whe make the most of the authorized outline to propose a building with a simple construction principle and rational organization, while maintaining the garden’s qualities. All the laboratories and offices are turned to the garden thanks to the gallery distribution system under the hull south facade (it allows on one hand an optimal control of the temperature, and secondly, the precise frame on the surrounding urban elements).

School Complex at Le Bourget / by Hubert & Roy Architectes et Associes

School complex at Le Bourget / by HUBERT & ROY ARCHITECTES ET ASSOCIÉS

The school at Le Bourget is modelled after its changing neighbourhood, an area facing the landscape of Grand Paris, connected to the city by green “corridors”, and brought near Paris thanks to its nearby train station. Just like a vertebrate organism slipping into the fragmented plot, the school is designed based on a structure entirely made out of timber, digitized and optimized, prefabricated in a workshop-factory and mounted in a few months by two craftsmen. This structure, including structural frames every 1.50 m, is covered with a green roof for water retention and thermal mass. Elevations of the structure are cladded with glass and aluminium panels aligned on the 1.50 m frame to frame distance. Therefore, the aluminium envelope is only 4 mm thick and the insulation fits within the thickness of the structure.
