INTERESTS Music

I have been playing the guitar (electric and acoustic) for 12 years. I have taught myself, and I play mainly rock music. I was playing in a group during my high school studies. I have also started singing classes two years ago.

Sports

I am an active person and I like sport, especially surfing, dancing and hiking. I enjoy trying to push my limits further and try new challenges. I have recently started learning skiing and climbing.


People, experience, future. Three concepts which, from my point of view, meet together when it comes to building. To design fair and sustainable projects, it seems important to know why we are building and whom we are building for. Every place owns a history, everyone has different backgrounds, different feelings in an environment, and we have to respect them. We need to adapt the way we build to new ways of life, to present and future generations’ wishes. Architectural works shelter functions, people, stories, dreams, and that’s, in my opinion, where architecture lives.

The proposal benefits from a strong relationship between internal and external spaces, by a partition of the different functions and atmospheres along the site, all linked by a glass gallery and a «path of water». The addition of that feature allows a visual connection with water - the site being far from the ocean.

SNAKY RESIDENTIAL OVER THE ‘‘PETITE CEINTURE’’ SNAKY RESIDENTIAL OVER THE ‘‘PETITE CEINTURE’’ (OLD RAILWAYS IN PARIS, FRANCE) - DIPLOMA PROJECT - MASTER’S DEGREE - 46 APARTMENTS - PARIS Duration : 5 months. The project began with the choice of a site with a lot of restraints. My choice : a narrow and shady site along the railways, between close residential buildings, without any opened views, and with different ground levels. The maximal volume is shaped to be integrated in the environment. Three types of apartments are developed in three different situations. All are organised around a glass corridor linked to terraces, as a real in-between space. A strip around the building allows an additionnal space, internal or external. The perforated metal skin finally wraps the building, links it with the environment and gives to the inhabitants a great freedom of use.

Density - Filling

Opening to the environment Light, View, Crossing

Site problems : narrowness, closed views, shadows Three situations...

FACETTED TOWER -

MASTER’S DEGREE (2nd year) 60 APARTMENTS - PARIS Duration : 3 months and a half. The project consists in settling a tower with 60 apartments on a site between 2 different road levels. My work was focused on views : by adapting apartements and facades to the environment, turning them towards available viewpoints. The building shape has also been adapted to the environment, in plan as in section. The facades express this idea by their facetted arrangement (light and hollow or dark and heavy).

MODULARITY AROUND A CORE -

BACHELOR’S DEGREE (3rd year) - DWELLINGS - IN ABSTRACTO Duration : 1 month This project in abstracto needed a thinking about flexible apartments. I have worked on the distribution space as an additionnal real room, and on the rooms modularity, allowing an infinite number of schemes and of apartments, made from only two modules. A poster was made to submit this work.

An 18 m² module, and a half-module of 9m²

The 9 m² module, which can be associated with the central core to make a 18 m² module. The 18 m² module, with the smallest dwelling surface in France.

Le module de 9 m, moitié du grand module. Il s’agit du carré central autour duquel tout s’organise. Le module de 9 m qui s’associe au carré central pour former un module de 18 m.

Mathoré Lauren Groupe A. Scaranello

Différentes associations de modules, pour une multiplicité de plans possibles.

Un carré central aux multiples fonctions : un facteur de flexibilité du plan. Ainsi, ce carré, de 3x3 m, permet de distribuer toutes les pièces du logements. Il permet un apport supplémentaire de lumière dans ces pièces, d’agrandir certaines d’entre elles, ou peut rester autonome.

T1 T3_1

Les pièces peuvent donc s’organiser librement autour du carré central. Un système de modules de 3x6 m reliés à ce carré central facilite la «fabrication» des logements et leur imbrication. Leur préfabrication crée également la flexibilité de construction.

T5_1

T4_1

Ce carré central par lequel passent toutes les circulations du logements permet en outre un aménagement libre et non contraint du mobilier dans les pièces.

Il peut également permettre d’agrandir les pièces de vie, selon les envies et les besoins des habitants.

ou des terrasses ; il sera possible de les rajouter au module pour agrandir le logement.

Un plan, des plans : un même plan peut être mis en miroir en entier ou seulement autour du carré central. Cette symétrie peut se faire dans plusieurs sens. La libre association des volumes des logements entre eux permet d’inventer diverses dispositions.

ATTENTION LES NUMEROS DE LOGEMENTS ( T2_1, T2_2 …) VIENNENT DU A0 !!!!!!!

Des modules à différentes échelles

Ainsi, tout s’organise en modules à différentes échelles : le module de départ de 18 m, puis le T2 en forme un plus grand, auquel on ajoute des modules de 18 m pour augmenter la taille du logement. Il est ensuite possible d’agglomérer les logements rationnellement, conventionnellement, en tour ou en barre, qui forment à leur tour un module à plus grande échelle. Ces modules à plus grande échelles peuvent ensuite être assemblés librement entre eux, déclinant de nouveau une diversité de formes.

Cette libre association permet également d’obtenir des formes plus organiques, par exemple ici en assemblage hélicoïdal autour d’une circulation centrale.

Il est également intéressant de voir comment regrouper les logements autour d’une circulation centrale, sur le même principe qu’à l’intérieur des logements qui, à l’intérieur, s’organise autour d’un carré central lumineux de distribution.

Ici, l’assocation de 3 modules de 18 m crée un espace de distribution central et lumineux autour duquel s’organisent les logements. Ceux-ci s’accrochent à la distribution par leur carré central. On obtient donc un ensemble de 10 logements, que l’on peut ensuite répéter à la fois horizontalement et verticalement, selon le site et les préférences. Cette association de logement permet de créer quelques terrasses et d’éclairer toutes les pièces naturellement.

Project development for the facade skin of toll offices in the International Market of Rungis. Design, drawings and renderings (2D and 3D). The skin protects workers from sun light whithout troubling views towards exterior, which are essential to the toll officers. I have also worked on signalling systems for the users. These skins are in tensed clothes, plane or double curved. We used the red color used for the signalling systems in the Market.

(RE)DISCOVERING-

Museum - 4 520 m² MASTER’S DEGREE (1st year) - MUSEUM - 4 520 M² VENICE Duration : 3 months and a half - Worked in pairs. The project consists in the designing of a glass museum on Murano Island (Venice). Our project tranforms the sight of the lagoon in a show, as it is rarely seen from the island. This is made with visual cones crossing the entire building. They cross three sequences. The closest we get to the lagoon, the more light we get. First, the shown storage rooms, then the glassblowers’ workshops with roof lighting, then the exhibition space, generously opened towards the exterior, and, finally, the lagoon, masterpiece of this museum.

Making a museum just like the city is : a sequential discovering.

URBAN SPACES


UNION AND ATTRACTION - Public square

Today : the abandoned public spaces.

BACHELOR’S DEGREE (3rd year)- Public square - ST OUEN (near Paris) Duration : 3 months - Project completed in groups of three students. The project is about the redevelopment of the square RÊpublique at Saint-Ouen (a city near Paris), where we can find the town hall.

Lowering the traffic, Creating a square, Linking activities.

Our project unifies this split square, and facilitates slow flows (biking and walking). It also creates a real square for the town hall. Our project renovates and links the abandoned ice rink to the town. These goals are reached by the public spaces organisation, and the flows organisation.

STRUCTURES


BAMBOO BRIDGE BACHELOR’S DEGREE (3rd year) DESIGN WORK - BAMBOU BRIDGE Duration : 1 week - work in group of four students. This work was designed with students of the French National School of civil engineering. We have built a bamboo bridge to cross a 6 meters range, at 0,80 meter high from the floor, using the least amount of material as possible. The bridge had to support a person’s weight all along the path. We made the laureate project, thanks to its solidity, its economy of material and its aesthetic appeal.

‘‘ULTRA-LIGHT WORN SHELTER’’ -

Parade at school

BACHELOR’S DEGREE (1st year) - ‘‘ULTRA-LIGHT WORN SHELTER’’ - Parade at school Duration : 2 weeks - Project worked in group of four students. We have built a worn shelter, as light as possible. Our structure, a ‘‘portable changing room’’, made with timber, was simply put and balanced on my shoulders. The curtain could be opened to enter the ‘‘room’’.


THESIS


FEELING MATERIAL... MASTER’S DEGREE (1st year) Feeling material... Timber? Warm. Concrete? Cold. Steel? Framework. Stone? Traditional. These are examples of preconceived ideas we can often have about material. Questionning them seems important in my opinion, because understanding which feelings are inspired by material gives us information about how people will react to them. Architecture is dedicated to people, inhabitants, walkers, ... How will they feel towards the building? Towards such and such material? Giving indication about how they would feel in spaces, which are what we create as architects. Material creates atmosphere, impressions, feelings in a space, and creates the space itself. That’s why we shouldn’t underestimate choices of material as they create a sensitive link between people and buildings, as much as their shapes. In this thesis I have written and thought about our feelings about material and the preconceived ideas we can have about them. How do we spontaneously feel them? Why do we have those ideas? Do architects have the same feelings as the general public ? I have aimed to answer those questions with a personal survey at the beginning of the research. I have focused my work on the human five senses and the way they make us feel architecture and material, and on the way material awake our senses.


THE LARGE PUBLIC RESIDENTIAL SEEN BY THE PRESS MASTER’S DEGREE The large public residential seen by the french press. From stigmatized architecture to saving architecture.

The way we look at the large public residential in France is really important for architects because it points out the way we can work there. Indeed, we need to understand the existing scheme to set how we can improve it. There I have aimed to understand the different opinions on these areas (the mayor’s one, the journalists’, the inhabitants’, etc.), and to define how they actively take part to the territory transformation.

In 2005, violent events happened in the large public residential at Clichy-Montfermeil. The press has dramatized it and has drawn attention on these districts. After what the politics have decided to undertake renovation projects to improve inhabitants’ living conditions. But this improvement only happened in the press, only with words... There was the subject : how has the architectural scheme been linked to these different events? How did we look at these spaces ? The violent events and the renovation projects were analyzed through press articles. My work has pointed out that these districts are always looked from far away, like inaccessible territories. As architects, we can wonder if we can really make projects from far away, without a real sound site studying and understanding. I have understood that the territories transformations are deeply linked to their representations, especially those used by architects to design their projects, and those used by journalists to speak about these projects. Architecture isn’t only a way to create living spaces, it’s also a political and a media tool.
