1. [NO] CITY MALL Type : Public Space Year : 2020 Teacher : Frank MinnaĂŤrt - Brent Patterson Partner : Hugo Suchet Location : /

What is Dissolute consumption ? We assume that contemporary consumption has been dissolved in space and reflects the digital revolution: we call it dissolute, diffuse, and evanescent. The act of purchasing is now possible from everywhere and thus extends the consumption domain to every place. Moreover, with the advent of the human attention economy, dissolute consumption is not only buying objects, it is also consuming screen time, entertainment, and images broadcasted by digital interfaces. Why Dissolution attempts to public space integrity ? We assume that Dissolution attempts to public space integrity by making it support for advertising and ubiquitous surveillance. Indeed, the logic of customer surveillance present online is spreading into the tangible world and therefore into public space. Commercial companies are searching to extend their surveillance domain to improve consumer patterns and insidious influence processes. Why a handbook for citizen resistance ? We believe in citizen mobilization efficiency to protect public space values. We condemn the vision of a user-citizen, preferring the vision of a citizen as an active individual, informed about the mechanisms of consumption and the processes of influence. To facilitation and technological assistance, we respond that the individual and collective capacity for action can be increased and not replaced by digital. Resisting the Dissolution of consumption in public space also means defending the spontaneity of the city and the serendipity of the streets. Resist inviting citizens to raise their heads, to reconnect with the real and inexhaustible spectacle of the city.




In a citizen resistance action, the first step consists of a clear identification of what the fight is against. Moreover, the Dissolution of consumption is by nature a very diffuse and discrete phenomenon that operates a sneaky influence on people. The strength of this commercial influence resides precisely in the average people’s ignorance of their existence, notably concerning personal data treatment. So, Identify mechanisms of influence that promote continuous consumption, being aware of their existence, and being informed about their functioning is crucial in citizen empowerment. This is what aims this first mode of operation in citizen resistance. 8

Now knowing how artefacts of Dissolution work, the citizen is able to interfere with them and their expected functioning. The aim of this second mode of action is to parasitize consumption interfaces disseminates in public space. Because among other things, these interfaces play a crucial role in consumption facilitation. They turn the purchase act in a playful way that anaesthetizes critical thinking. Also, paratising consists of creating devices to avoid mass surveillance powered by machines. Because surveillance is as well online to track consumers behaviour, as in the physical world in public space. Parasitize explores citizen resistance by light interventions and day to day behaviour. 10

hack The third mode of operation aims to deflect the initial purpose of devices that support and promote mass consumption. Hack gather several projects that assume a citizen appropriation of technologies and devices of commercial influence By citizen hacking, artefacts of Dissolution can endorse a different meaning and hence disrupt individual accumulation and constant entertainment consumption. 12

Mushroom Lockers — Amazon lockers are spreading in various areas of cities. It represents more and more volume of space, only devoted to the circulation of personal goods. The Mushroom Locker aims to disrupt normal operation by misleading the sensors to use these volumes of space for a productive purpose.

1. Order a mushroom kit on

2. Go to the Amazon Lockers to find your package.

3. Enter the code.

4. Open the locker, your package and the kit.

5. Close the locker, with the package inside. 50

6. Come back two weeks later to harvest the mushrooms. 51

Consumption Spatializer — In the dissolute consumption context, digital purchasing increases. Customized, facilitated and entertaining, the consumption using interfaces devices converts a body activity into consumer data. Because saving time from non-capitalizable activities seems crucial, goods come to us, we do not have to move toward goods anymore. This has consequences, like erasing from people’s consciousness the origin of products. There is no doubt that today’s consumption is impacting global environment. Any western act of purchase may have consequences on other continent’s biodiversity. This project aims to materialize the «size» of anyone’s consumption. By scanning the Citizen Consumption Captial (C3) from the smartphone, large inflatable balloons will grow, depending on the relative impact on the environment. The purpose is twofold. First, helping people to realise their own impact on the environment, and then restrict access to living areas for people complicit of life destruction. The right to swing my fist ends where the other man’s nose begins.

cure Cure proposes the installation of several new programs in public space that aims to promote an alternative consumption model. Using new technologies of networking between people and objects, the idea is to optimize goods and raw materials consumption — to support the collaborative and local economy. Also to reconnect the citizen with the tangible environment of the city and make him raise its head from ubiquitous digital interfaces. 14

2. KARST Jacques Rougerie International competition : 1st Prize Category : «Innovation and architecture for Oceans» Type : Oceanographic Observatory Year : 2019 Teacher : Nicolas Gilsoul Partner : Isaac Barbet Location : Ishcia, Italia

In the depths of Neapolitan waters, fine bubbles are escaping from the sea bed of the Kingdom of Neptune. These are CO2 released by the volcanic activity of the Ischia island. For this exceptional situation, the island became a hot spot for oceanographic researches. Indeed, the CO2 saturation acidifies water drastically and alters submarine ecosystem conditions. Simultaneously, oceans tend to acidify themselves by capturing the ever-growing atmospheric CO2. Ischia appears as a window to the future: the pH of the surrounding water would be the global pH of oceans in three hundred years. Karst project is an immersed oceanographic observatory specialized in the study of extreme acidity. Building temporalities are at the center of its design. The steel structure supports a limestone envelope. Within time, it will be altered, eroded by water acidity. This decomposition creates cavities, interstices, which become ecosystems. The design of the envelope allows the reconstitution of the main typologies of Mediterranean environments (cave, semi-enclosed cave, sandy bottom...). Those representative ecosystems will be the focus of research in the laboratory. It represents a full-scale simulator of the oceans’ future conditions. A hundred years have gone by and the limestone layer is entirely eroded, the observatory activities come to an end. The building starts its second life cycle: its return to nature. Thanks to an electric current running through the structure, now revealed, electrolyze happens. This chemical process encourages limestone accretion onto the inert material, which is progressively covered by the young corral. The observatory of men thus becomes a reef. From their passage, men left behind a sustainable habitat. It is not a zero-footprint building but a positive one.

3. A(86) tunnel Type : Architecture research Year : 2018 Teacher : Marc Armengaud, Franรงois Gruzon Partner : Hugo Suchet, Pierre Bertin Location : Nogent-sur-Marne, France

In the contemporary context, rethink and rehabilitate the existant infrastructures affirms itself as a sustainable developpment method. Yet mobility evolves, uberization and optimization of transports invite us to think about the future of the mobility infrastructures. The path of the Grand Paris Express often follow the A86 highway - the Ile-de-France ring-road - hence reduce the quantity of users. So what become for this mythic road and its equipments ? We propose here a reflexion on this issues which stand as metroplitan scale. This project is a narration articulated in five chapters. Each one relates a possible evolution phase of the A86 tunnel of Nogent-surMarne. From an architectural curiosity, we projected realites that understand the various components that lead to the creation of public spaces. Policies, social issues, sustainability, benefits...



Chapitre 1. PneumA-86 - Pneumatic network located at strategic multimodal point of the Grand Paris. The less used tunnel is firstly bought by a logistic company of delivery.

Chapitre 3. Nos-Gens-Sรปrs - Resistance and occupation against the penumatic project. Informal, self-made urbanism.

4. De O a Cerro Type : Urban Planning Year : 2018 Teacher : Julian Pena Partner : Clara Vialis Location : Valparaiso, Chile

Valparaiso is a chilian city with an exceptional cultural heritage and topography. The place is concentrated around the industrial harbor, in terms of economical activities and topography. Indeed, Valparaiso is an amphitheater where the stage is the cost. Furrows named Quebradas cross from the top to the cost and emphasize the centralization. However, the urban development focused on the harbor is now obsolete, due to the privatization and the industrial activities that cut it from the rest of the city. Now the center at the sea level endeavor to ÂŤkeep its head above the waterÂť and the highest parts are in precariousness in terms of access and infrastructure. Our proposal aims to extend and decentralized the development areas in Valparaiso, notably with public infrastructures of mobility. It also prevents unformal urbanization that endangers some inhabitants, gives access to the sea, and requalifies some residual spaces with adapted architectures.




— De 0 a Cerro





Strategies : 1. Cross : Briges to cross the quebradas and decentralize transportation. 2. Fill/Fit : Hybrid programs inserted in strategic nodes. Adapted architecture. 3. Climb : Cable car to reach the top (300m)/ the center (sea level) of the city easily. 4. Drain : Important reservoir that collect excessive water that feed protected vegetation and prevent from wildfire 5. Prevent : Public path and housing to prevent informal urbanism at the bottom of quebradas. 34

5. Talweg Type : Communal School Year : 2019-2020 Teacher : Pierre David Partner : 8 people studio Location : Gojjam, Amhara, Ethiopia

The Ethiopian countryside, also known as «the cradle of life», is a special place, with a rare beauty and abundance. In Amhara, a northern province, communities occupy the territory in a humble relationship with the environment, respecting and living over the cycle of seasons. Nevertheless, many remote villages remain faraway from public infrastructures, such as schools. So, many children from those villages have to walk kilometers every day to attend classes. The Talweg school is preciously located, between a village and an orphanage. The school appears as a social lever with two degrees. It will provide knowledge to young generations of the village, and allow the orphans to meet other kids. The school owns different zones, one to transmit knowledge, another one to host teachers, and a last to interact with the village and offer services. Water plays a significant role in health development, as most diseases originate from bacterias present in consumed water. Thus, it was crucial to think about the quality of water, but also the quantities. Indeed, this area is subject to a long dry season. The title «talweg» comes from this reflection. We created a micro water cycle, using the groundwater. Thanks to several collecting devices, we drain it to talwegs, or natural furrow that follow the natural slope. Every talweg owns infiltration well. The groundwater is, thus, continuously fed.


Sport area : large flat area with polyvalent pitch. At street level, it can host communal market. Teacher zone : reserved place for teachers. Contains housing, vegetables gardens and shared kitchen.

Library - workshop : located at the top, as a symbole of knowledge, visible from all the village.

Talweg : vegetalized furrow that enables water infiltration in the groundwater.

Buffer zone : transversal area between the school and the village. Symbiotic programs. Classrooms : two-room cells that collect water and allows outdoor extension

6. Bikulture Type : Public Infrastructure Year : 2015 Teacher : Frank Minnaërt Partner : / Location : Paris 18, France

In the context of the new paradigm of climate consciousness, cities need to adapt themselves. The first step concerns mobilities. The individual car represents a significant part of the cities’ carbon dioxide emission. Metropolises like Paris have to follow the Scandinavian model, by constraining drivers and encouraging the use of soft mobilities or public transport. Then, infrastructures need to be rethought to host those new dynamics. The project is a compact bike park. It proposes an efficient response to the storage of a large number of bicycles with a light intervention. The structure’s interstices own bike racks. Thus, the project becomes a sort of sculpture made of bikes, that allow the light to pass through.
