Paul Valery Regional Campus Paris 12
The Paul Valéry Regional Campus carries excellence of AI, environmental innovation and humanity in its DNA. Drawn on a rich and living history, the project offers a real renewal to the Parisian Collège-Lycée Paul Valéry while settling the Campus of tomorrow.
We imagined a Temple of Knowledge able of withstanding future-proof by generalizing the existing framework and by recomposing the historic facade with a wooden structure and a casing in anodized aluminium. This modular and frugal approach ensures the reversibility and flexibility of spaces and future uses.
Nature and re-employment have a strategic place here in an eco-responsible architecture favoring the already-there rather than demolition.
Functionning with this Campus and in continuity with its oasis yards and the educational garden, the shared park will be a real green lung in the city in order to bring freshness and peace of mind for students but also for local residents.
