“Invent your Atelier” or the metaphors of an architectural practice
There exists a close relationship between the atelier of a painter and his paintings; similarly, an architectural practice is characterized by the image of the profession being exercised within it and says something about the spaces that the architect is currently conceiving. What is a place that is intimately connected with the design process? An interface? A place that itself becomes processual?

These questions were posed to young graduates of the school of architecture in Nancy. This was a dual exercise: to conceive an atelier (a studio/workplace) and, at the same time, to reflect on the process of conception (the practical approach).
Thus, to think about a profession and its space
The spaces are built out of light materials (wood, panels, textiles, steel), of scrap material and construction materials that are easy to work. These are conceptual models for which the body is the standard of measurement. The spaces are not conceived as adequate representations, but rather as metaphors realized on a real-life scale modeled on a working space, and by means of which one recognizes a problematic issue, the position of a body or of several bodies, a rapport to the material, to the light, to movement, to media, a rapport to others, a rapport to the world.
