and European metropolis of the 21th century. An international multidisciplinary consultation was launched to work on a prospective diagnosis, urban and landscape of the Parisian metropolis . The aim was to provide an overview on the future of the metropolis of the 21th century in general and the future of the Paris region in particular. This consultation identifies two areas of research devoted to developing areas of the metropolis. The first project , in which I participated , is more fundamental research on the «metropolis of the XXIst century post -Kyoto». The second project is more an application of the «Prospective diagnosis of the Paris agglomeration» research. After working on complex themes that are large on urban paradox by comparing the parisian model to other cities like New York, London or Beijing, we have been asked to think about and illustrate the physical dimension of the city. An analysis of metropolitan fabric, its recurring and recognizable shapes shown us in a comparative readability (sections, impactions and juxtapositions), the hybrid territory, segmented, differentiated, non-homogeneous, the peripheries.This analysis of the types of functional and programmatic areas (suburban, cities, new

The system of public spaces is much more discontinuous, distended and difficult to practice in metropolitan peripheries and all , from the report that was abandoned street - block, because ideologically perceived as outdated and not identifiable in our programs, our morals, our techniques. Found throughout the network structures (auto, railway, logistics parks, etc...) that cross segment peripheral urban groundwater areas, which were often built into homogeneous functional areas (housings, large groups , malls, activities). Their structural rail system, homogeneity, their position, their remoteness, isolation , these spaces are often immediately favorable to « ghettoïsations » when

Translation of heritage issues / Sketch Planning After the presentation of the city of Dreux in its physical, urban and historical constraints (including the implementation of a plan of historical topography), then the diagnosis around a perimeter issues, around MĂŠtĂŠzeau place and its immediate surroundings, the study undertook an inventory of buildings by providing information on buildings remarquables (or not) elements in the area. This analysis allowed the establishment of a protection tool, to safeguard and enhance a varied architectural, urban and landscape heritage. Once defined and mapped, this tool of protection, is the basis for the outline of a management plan that integrates all components of territory issues and assists in the identification of areas that respond priority.

I WALK THE LINE The concept is to recreate a link which exceeds the simple art gallery project to give an urban dimension, linking the two banks of the river, the high part and its surroundings. The project is designed as a line, a pathway. Based on an existing volume, it is extruded and becomes a staircase tower used as a junction between the high place and the project platform. This platform bridge serves as connection with the other side of the river.

TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE OF(F) THE WALL The project aims at reconciling the requirements of a very ambitious program due to the number of housings to be filled (350 dwellings / hectare) with the willingness to offer maximum public spaces and meeting places This mix and porosity to be found between private spaces to reside and public spaces for meetings and activities is coupled with social and generational melting-pot between students, families + tourists

ROOFTOP VILLAGE The project proposes a connection between an exhibition and showroom program, but also a social support with a learning center for young designers, coupled with the use of vernacularThai Architecture. Each element of the program is housed in a box which is an answer to climatic constraints. These buildings are grouped around terraces and squares, like family rooms and outdoor living spaces, and connected by an inner street which becomes the cluster spine.

CRANK STEP A new landmark. A new Icon. Sculpting a gross form, extruding, cutting, digging‌then comes cantilevered boxes as a path, step by step, from city to nature. Then becomes a new urban milestone, physically connected with the other city’s symbols. A promenade. A journey. From bottom to top. The museum as a continuous promenade. A stairway composed by exhibition spaces propose to investigate the different rooms at different heights, offering different points of view on the city.

BOX AND WING The project creates a spatial and programmatic tension, with bar on stilts, while seeking his own identity. The location is thought to not close the island with a large bar similar to the main building but rather to propose the creation of an open block that allows multiple spaces with different scales which gradually spread over the site. At both ends, are the Tschumi building and the new project. It appears as a element of dialectical discourse between the existing and the proposed work. If the bar has developed a horizontal language, new office seeks to explore spatial verticality. If the bar is placed in a frontal relationship with the landscape, extension rather seeks to integrate within it. The bar is structured symmetrically between individual offices and open-plan offices, the new building offering a 3D relationship.
