Diploma in Architecture from ENSAP Bordeaux and NTNU Trondheim with some professional experience in urbanism and landscape in København currently looking for a job in Oslo.

Hei, jeg heter Manon og kommer fra Frankrike. For me, a work of architecture can be a site’s revealer, to expose and to provoke the meeting between material and the poetry of a place. The site’s qualities – the history and memories, the context and materiality, the ground, the views and vegetation. Within the following projects you will discover values which I express through stories, images and drawings. An internship at SLA in København as a part of my master’s degree gave me valuable insight into the Scandinavian culture. Working in the competition and international team offered me the opportunity to experience urbanism and landscape projects in relation with the architecture team and also to deepen my 3D images skills. Then starting my master in Trondheim in the Design in Context studio lead by Sami Rintala and Pasi Aalto gave me the opportunity to do workshops with human scale projects through the north and west of Norway. This insight into the Scandinavian culture and nature affirmed my expectations, and made me sure that I would like to continue my life in Norway. I’m very passionate and enthusiastic about my previous projects and experiences. Both my educational and professional work has taught me one important thing – to learn. Furthermore, I have a strong awareness of sustainability, an awareness I developed when I wrote my first thesis about reusing materials and the urgency of expanding its lifecycle. I had the opportunity to further develop this interest, among other sustainable projects, through my internship at SLA where I learnt about nature’s place in the city. More recently, during a semester at NTNU, I was a part of a research project (ReWood) where the goal was to develop a BIM based dynamic flow analysis for different scenarios of material re-use. I have a varied skill set, I am ready to adapt myself of any given task, and I enjoy working in teamwork with a diverse set of digital tools and process, sketching, making physical models and presentation with a basis in my drone photos. All these tools work well with my structured and dynamic workflow.

What SLA taught me is first and foremost a way of seeing a world in which we live differently, constantly evolving, actively seeking positive solutions to the climate hazards of tomorrow. Having a fresh look on the city and our future, do not be afraid to show your values ​​and defend them. What SLA taught me is to be able to believe in your ideas and lead them to the end in every project in any scale and with every type of customer. Here I collected and tried to share these values, thoughts and theories which animated my experience within the office, on more than current discussions and debates about sustainable and ecological urban development.

This internship is a double experience, which gave me the chance to discover, through a new culture, a set of practices of which I didn’t have as enough knowledge. Drawing the landscape that surrounds us, whether urban or more wild, uses a multiplicity of scales that I could experience. It is our duty today in our practice to restore a status quo between architecture and landscape that must be thought together and thus not using one in the detriment of the other and vice versa. Building is not the solution to all current socio-urban problems, we

must also review its functioning and more balance the inside and the outside because that is what makes the dynamics of our cities, their sustainability and the feeling of goodto be. So more than the architecture of our landscape, understand the territory that surrounds us on a larger scale and think further.

D IPLOMA « Île d’Yeu, light and retreat in the high sea: An insular journey as a tool for recovery » Rehabilitation of the fishing industrial landmarks

Teamwork - 2 architects

Ile d’Yeu 2021

A N I NS U LAR JO U RNEY A S A TOO L FO R REC OVERY In a society in perpetual acceleration, the new possibilities offered to mankind are constantly increasing, generating the feeling that we no longer have time to do anything: Man feels subjected and stressed by the pressure of time, leading to the development of modern pathologies, such as burn-out. The island of Yeu, because of its insularity, seems to resist this frantic rhythm and contrasts with the mainland. The island itself is in search of its identity after the fishing crisis and the disappearance of its core activity, so the challenge is to give a new meaning to several places that are now disused. The programme, defining insularity as a tool for reconstruction, aims to reconnect people from the mainland suffering from burn-out to a more natural and healthy rhythm of life and work. The project consists of a series 24 88

of interventions, divided into five acts: awareness, confrontation, encounter, interaction and fulfilment. Three sites were then identified, both for their contexts and specificities in responding to the expectations of the cure, but also for their significance on the island: they themselves seem to be in burn-out. Revealing a historical axis from the Port de la Meule to the Port Joinville, the cliff, the maritime laboratory and the fishing factory are reinvested, shaping a new identity for these now abandoned places. These architectures catalyse new forms of daily interaction between the inhabitants of the island and the people from the mainland.

The project is integrated to follow and sculpted the actual landscape and its topography, while creating a new landmark in Oslo, a public park linked to the bay through an emergence : the lighthouse. In our values, museums of tomorrow should be alive, that is why we create a design that can be cross everyday and which emphasize this harbour part of Oslo. Today, design is inspired by everything, this is why we wanted to offer a completely free scenography without any constraint : each visit is a unique experience. The lighthouse, as a final point, embodies the educational part of the museum where ideas can arise. Team: Arthur Rundstadler, Thomas Lagourgue, Manon Darde

LY KTA Public fireplace

Teamwork - 15 architects

Sjøholt 2019


Sjøholt is a small town in beautiful Sunnmøre in the western part of Norway. This town has a rich history and has for several centuries been a connection between land and sea. When tourists came here in the beginning of the 20th century, the historical city center developed into a vibrant place. Time passed and modernist city planning ruined the vibrant city center with a highway. Nowadays the municipality of Ørskog has taken action in revitalizing the city center, and especially the waterfront. Lykta is a tiny intervention, but it has the effect that the public can discover the waterfront in a new way. It marks the beginning of the new built environment by the harbour. Lykta is a new public space placed on the edge of Sjøholt, where the city center meets Storfjorden. The goal has been to make a gathering space and a shelter against the relatively harsh climate. What better program than a fireplace?

44 88

The site is on the outer breakwater in the harbour area. On the western side of the site, there is several kilometers of unobstructed fjord. This makes for stunning views and lighting from the west, but also for tough winds and big waves. Using local materials and

resources was given. The local saw recommended using the local mountain pine that had been first sawn 5km away from the building site, and then dried for some five years to become the ultimate raw material we used. The local saw delivered pine planks with a section of 50mm x 370mm. Using this dimension was a decision was made early in the process. It has both structural and spatial qualities that was used throughout the design. In the process, we also reused four wood logs that were found in the local saw. They were not in good state for the design but strong enough for the foundation. Both the design and building were done on site by the team of international students from NTNU within ten days. Sketching and modelling on site made the design develop, and the chosen material made way for a lot of one-toone testing. The meeting point between the material and sketches made an everchanging process as they affected each other. The structure itself is composed by thirteen frames, with each frame consisting of a floorboard, a ceiling board and two or three columns. Each column is constructed of two boards, which forms an “L” in plan. These columns are placed in the perimeter of the building, and in sum creating the walls.

PR IX WIL MOTTE Rehabilitation of Château d’Aigues

Teamwork - 3 architects

La Tour d’Aigues 2020


The Château de la Tour d’Aigues is an architectural palimpsest that symbolizes the cultural richness of the Provencal countryside. Our project, «Orto d’escoundoun», in Provençal, is the expression of this history contained within the walls of the castle: to highlight the intimate relationship between the castle and its territory, incarnated in our project thread: «Slow Food». This reactionary movement, born in Italy in the face of the emergence of fast food in the 1980s, advocates the intrinsic values of the territory, the local identity, the tangible and intangible heritage, the know-how and its transmission. Our aim is to offer a responsible and innovative experience: a journey that involves the local culture of the product, its processing, its tasting and 52 88

the transmission of a heritage. This philosophy, in which respect for the «already there» is associated with a second strong desire that emerged from our visit to the site: to think through the void. The courtyard of the castle is a key space, outlining the stone enclosures. It is a vital respiration of the project, which we translate into a new design of the ground and a work of digging. It is not a question of adding elements, but of extracting the essence of the existing and revealing its character. Team: Arthur Rundstadler, Thomas Lagourgue, Manon Darde

Teamwork - 3 architects

Nyksund 2019


The aim of the studio was to create an office. This workshop of two weeks in Nyksund allowed us to experiment a real professional immersion, directly in touch with the different clients, also inhabitants of a little community in a fishing village along the fjord. People of this micro-city introduce us to different problematic that can represent their daily life in a touristic place. The project presented here focuses on the entrance of the peninsula. The introduction of vehicles is limited so it was a need to rehabilitate the parking space on the other side of the mohol. This village along the cost is really exposed to extreme conditions during the long winter so it can not allowed the construction of light or risky 58 88

structures. It becomes necessary to think with the site and its geographical characteristics. A plurality of potential materials are already present on the site and have proven for hundreds of years their robustness against storms. Working with rocks seemed clear. Isolated, they will be used to divide and camouflage the many cars parked during the summer to preserve the character of the place. Also, rocky mass close to the car park create cavities inspiring more intimate spaces, potential for the installation of a public bathroom. These buildings materials are already present on the site so they create a richer experience for visitors who will be directly in contact with the rock, whether as wall or gabillons to create floor structures.

Teamwork - 3 architects + 4 engineers

Ciboure 2020

N OTIO N O F T IM E In the present time the project respond to a real need - the space for building an historical Basque wooden boat during the next ten years. The notion of time is at the core of the project’s thinking, calling us back into the past but also projecting us into the future and the evolution of the spaces created.

66 88

The project takes place in an area not really defined where cars have taken the main role. But just like the proposed program, the site has been able to adapt to the needs of the inhabitants, a former fishing port that has become a popular place to swim in the summer. In view of the evolution of the harbour of Socoa, we wanted to think a project that would be able to adapt to the times. «Le Cocon» or space of the present, is placed at the heart of the project. Its limited presence in time pitched by the project owner (ten years) represents a transition movement between past and future. The project is developed in three sequences that resonate with the site:

the levee, the refit and the workshop. Each of these programmes reflects a temporality, the levee embodies the past materiality of the site, the refit installs the construction of the boat in the present time and then the workshop prepares the future of the harbour of Socoa. Indeed, the know-how developed within this programme is a real investment for the return of a naval construction industry in the South of France. The shape of the refit then reveals itself as an infrastructure allowing the project to be semi-buried while gaining height for the shipyard and preserving a panorama over the bay of Socoa. This refit also makes it possible to facilitate the launching of the boats. After ten years, the dismountable nature of the wooden architecture of the shed leaves the choice of whether or not to preserve this space on the site. Its footprint gives way to the shape of the refit, which turns into a pool at the rhythm of the tides, and becomes a real public space.

1. Make a spatial answer to a transition from solitude to sociability. 2. Make a sense of place in a site-less situation 3. Enhance biodiversity

The first one is manifested through a journey of spaces with varying grade of privacy, ranging from the public space to the very private. In this both human and dog can find comfort upon arrival and evolve together over time. The common ground for the residents is the kitchen, situated in the heart of both the main building and amongst the surrounding buildings.

Spreading the program to smaller volumes creates a sense of place between the buildings. We imagine a loadbearing construction in CLT (cross-laminated timber), facilitating a good indoors climate and replicability, but we imagine local adjustments in cladding, using local knowledge and skills. Lighter construction can be made in cooperation with the residents, creating local adjustments and ownership. By studying the ground and flora to reveal local biodiversity, the project can add qualities supporting these findings. The introduction of a local permaculture ties bonds to the surrounding bioclimate and insures a healthy microclimate for both the residents and the local community.

M O NOL ITH Morphogenesis of an urban hall

Bachelor degree

Bordeaux 2018


I created this project taking the time into account about the evolution of the buildings in the part of the city which were built by successive layers, like a palimpsest. The quest of complementarity could be expressed through the creation of the symmetry of the extension. This new element fixed on the submarine base will be like a right hand in this quarter evolution. In this way, changing the viewpoint on this military base, beyond its military interests highlight their uncommon spaces. In a morphological aspect, reusing its monumental quality to make this extension a cathedral of light. Here I do not think in square meters but in cubic meters and take this template as a starting point. 80 88

At the urban scale, the project will be a signal to enhance a new submarine base entry, clearer in the new organization of the quarter in link with the new maritime museum and the Citée du Vin. The implantation of this monolithic block requires a strong connection with the ground with a stable base, creating a transition between a park and the dock area. This new axis enables sculpting the monolith to design an urban hall, a new confluence space where everything is possible.

T H E PARADOX O F T HE P ROJEC T IN RELAT IO N TO T H E LIVING : T h e ec ologic al stor y in th e A n thr opoc e ne e ra. Master Thesis

We are experiencing an ecological crisis which re-question our ways of living. Cities are in difficulty with the emergence of new climates characteristic of the Anthropocene where mankind have gradually disconnected themself from the living world. A common responsibility then encourages designers to reinvent our urban environments through new project approaches. These are facing a paradox, between a technical revolution and a call for resilience.

92 88

The exploration of Scandinavian culture reveals ways to integrate nature and the living into everyday life. A form of cohabitation that ease designers to detach themselves from the classic patterns of a project. In this way, the SLA office in Copenhagen

is involved in the realization of architectural and urban projects while exploring new methods of approaches. This singular case is an opportunity to rethink more generally how important is nature in a project? Can it become the starting point for a reconciliation between city and nature?

1. ELLIS, Erle C., Anthropocene: A Very Short Introduction, Oxford, 2018 2. BEAUX, Dominique, Alvar Aalto & Reima Pietilä : Finlande, architecture et génie du lieu, Éditions Recherches, 2015, p.171

Nowadays, numerous debates beyond the geology field are critical to the planetary era in which we find ourselves. Since the end of the 20th century, the scientific community has ruled and demonstrated that humans have become a dominant force over the earth’s natural forces. This theory has been held since 2000 and is now defined by the term Anthropocene1. This awareness, which is becoming increasingly popular, is now part of the ecological narrative. A narrative that has, moreover, evolved considerably. We have gone from a time marked by major industrial disasters: Seveso, Chernobyl, Fukushima, AZF ... to recurrent natural disasters: floods, forest fires, storms ... to which it is now difficult not to be sensitive. This new generation of the ecological narrative is now affected by natural climatic disasters affecting biodiversity and the living in more general terms. Consequences that are now impossible to ignore. The health crisis in which we find ourselves derives from this relationship of superiority to the living and its excessive consumption, out of scale. We are consuming more than the planet can bear. This crisis is forcing us to (re)question the relationship between human and nature, in the hope of redefining a certain ethic. These crises are the result of the different approaches to nature that humans have experimented with over the last century, generally driven by a technical method. The climate crisis cannot wait any longer and our approach to nature must go beyond a purely

technical approach. We must now observe and (re)introduce ourselves to the living phenomena that surround us. The architect and the building industry are obviously concerned by these observations. Indeed, construction and deconstruction projects are the biggest consumers of polluting resources. We will discover this relationship with nature, which continues to question our cultures, through a series of readings and encounters that will feed this theoretical framework. The Scandinavian case study refers to the notion of progress. Scandinavia has had a measured reaction to it. It was not as exposed to the Moderns as France and its lack of interest in the context. In fact, Alvar Aalto, when faced with Le Corbusier and the CIAM, has defended a certain ethic of the living environment since 1935, which was then prevailing in the Nordic countries2. This thought has helped to preserve a historical link that the Scandinavian people have with nature. In this era of the Anthropocene, where humans have a strength that is able to influence geological and climatic behaviour, could the urban and architectural project change the way we look at nature? Today, rethinking our design processes could be one of the ways to leave more room for nature in sustainable projects. Following these questions, we could ask ourselves: How can we reintegrate the living into the urban and architectural design process?


Humans have practiced reusing since their first constructions in an economic interest. However, today with the industrialization of materials production this practice is back again thanks to a paradigm shift about the concept of waste and her management. Reuse seems to be a possible answer to the problematic of waste reduction. It is therefore necessary, more specifically here, that I will focus on these materials, about what varieties and other potentialities they represent in comparison with “classical” materials, in addition to their ecological benefits? Can we believe in a deep transformation of the architectural design process to give more emphasis about the selection of materials inside?

I want to interrogate the new aesthetic that these materials can invent to encourage architects to integrate it into their creative process. This comeback of reemployment of building materials have to create desire and therefore spotlight this waste of the new millennium. Make public - more sensitive to the aesthetic part - want to support this new process. Create enthusiasm. It is through the communication of these new aesthetics models that it can be reinstated in the same way as new materials. Today, in our society, the image is a powerful gateway, like architecture photography of glossy magazines, to communicate with the public.

I am fully aware of the difficulty of integrating in the design process, at first sight, this less reliable materials, rather than materials at the cutting edge of technology. These assembly experiments covered in this thesis highlight the ability of the architect and his team to design the project differently with another process to involve materials already present. It promises to be a solution to reduce the energy impact and our waste; especially we need to take steps to prepare for the growing number of new constructions. What seems now an experimentation will be in a few years a tradition.

In all its applications, there is a common point in this reuse manifesto, the continuity of our collective memory. The reemployment of building materials forges link between the past and the present. Indeed, there is no economic interest to import old Chinese temple’s materials in Europe, so the reuse dynamic is more realistic and workable at a local scale. Therefore, this is an opportunity to build a new circular economy in local area. More than an ecological interest, reuse allow to enhance traditional skills and culture as well as vernacular aesthetics. In a context of globalization and homogenization, we need to take the time of rediscover the landscape of locale. We are all at the origin “children of our landscape 1”.

Reconsider project’s temporality to insert a reuse approach still a challenge for contracting owner who still favour to pour concrete with a view to the economic viability and deadline compliance. Rotor or Bellastock actors provide support and teaching on reuse materials to boost this circular economy by creating reliable fields. Then the design process is overwhelmed with new variables: the availability and the quality of these materials. Reuse is a first step to raise awareness about the reversibility of our constructions. Thanks to these efforts a real economy will can be invented. “Screwing and not gluing 2” the materials to allow them to circulate and think a removable architecture remains challenges of tomorrow...

R EW O O D, DIG ITAL M ODELLING AND R ES EARC H NTNU Research project, Department of industrial ecology: Daniel Beat Müller

“How much material is really stored within a city?” This assignment arrived from the industrial ecology department at NTNU, who sought help in creating building information models for their research project. At its core, the ReWOOD-project is an effort to create a method to analyze and capture a rough estimate of the total amount of materials we can expect to find in cities. Specifically, targeting Trondheim, and the materials brick, concrete and wood. The motivation for this is related with the increased interest in the re-using, recycling and recovering of building materials, sustainable building practices, and with the Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC)1. The latter directing EU member states to take necessary measures to achieve improved industry sustainability. 96 88

1., opened 18/11/2019. “One of the objectives of the Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC) is to provide a framework for moving towards a European recycling society with a high level of resource efficiency. In particular, Article 11.2 stipulates that "Member States shall take the necessary measures designed to achieve that by 2020 a minimum of 70% (by weight) of non-hazardous construction and demolition waste excluding naturally occurring material defined in category 17 05 04 in the List of Wastes shall be prepared for re-use, recycled or undergo other material recovery" (including backfilling operations using waste to substitute other materials).”

In order to represent the building stock of Trondheim, with reasonable accuracy, the client wanted around ~16-20 technically accurate and detailed Revit-models. These were to consist of 4 types of housing, from initially 4-5 cohorts. Each Revit-model would thereby represent an “archetype-average” of its age and type. These were later to be applied to GIS data from Trondheim, to calculate the total amount of materials in the housing building stock. The assignment required Revit-models of 4 different types of housing. Specifically, single-family housing,twin-housing, multi-family housing, and apartment blocks. After discussing the cohorts, we agreed on 3 separate time periods, consisting of pre-1900, 1900-1945, and 1945-present. The last cohort would later be slightly modified (fig.2). Along with the BIM-models, we agreed on delivering a Revit-library of building-parts. This would include a diverse range of walls, roofs, foundations and floors.

The library would allow for easy edit of current models, and to facilitate easy digital construction of other housing variations. Lastly, documentation of the process was needed. This included the accompanying choices, addresses and their sources, so as to support the technical details for each building-part within the library. Our working method was throughout the project based on preemptively analyzing potential stakeholders and possible supporters before “rediscovering” or “reinventing” knowledge or digital models and drawings. This included seeking support through early contact, in meetings and dialogue with professors at NTNU, the municipality and commercial business owners out in Trondheim and Norway. Further on, we ordered detailed information of selected houses in Trondheim, through the municipality. Research from available books and the byggforskserien allowed for accurate insight into structural and technical building methods, appropriate to the time-period of construction, and Revit-modelling techniques were acquired over time, with rich learning resources available online. The work was delegated according to cohorts and meetings were held at the classroom when needed within group, and at the industrial ecology offices when addressing important concerns with the client (fig.1).
