Central Aquatic Center Considering the lack of infrastructure responding to current standards of modern swimming pools, my project is directed towards an aquatic centre. Being inspired by a skeleton of a ďŹ sh, I propose a building that can host an international meeting in the west of Algeria, a country where sports and swimming in particular is mushrooming.

Renault ZeďŹ r Two friends buy Zephir to share more in a place of evasion, and to consume less and share experiences.Zephir is a two-seat car to travel accomplice and spend time together. To conform at the various moments of use, the inside is removable. There are two positions. The ďŹ rst one, both seats in front of the road, is used during the movement. The other one, where both seats are face each other as a lounge, is used during a break or while batteries are charging for example. For a greater feeling of evasion, freedom and space, Zephir is ventilated permanently by big circuits of air. They cross the vehicle along sides, pass has fault the dashboard and come to aerate the users by circulating around the seats. The air which circulates gives the feeling of freedom, open air, while being safe in the reassuring cocoon of a powerful and uid outside.

This interior allows the driver to move back and the passenger to advance and revolve towards the back. This layout makes the inside a small lounge to share moments between the passengers of the vehicle.

The rear contains batteries which are rechargeable thanks to the trap in the back. Batteries give the energy to the engine which is in the front.

Internships My internships were a real important step to build my knowledge and my career vision. During my time in Visteon and Faurecia I have the chance to be involved on a real projects with the Design team. I have been working close the designers and the engineers to develop technological demonstrators that we had to present to the car companies. It was a great input for my following job positions.

MC² Degree Project After completely melted into the urban landscape, the car begins to be increasingly rejected and banished from urban centers. However, although used only 20% of his time, the car still and continue to be an almost unavoidable subject for today’s man as well as habitat. To rebuild and strengthen the interplay between these two entities, automobile and architecture, «MC²» is a concept that optimizes the use of cars parked by using it as an extra power. This will allow energy exchange between the car park and the power grid. The user of this vehicle has the option to manage its power consumption and energy capital at will, according to his needs and his desires for his personal comfort, whatever his home will be: Habitat and / or Automobile.
