PUBLIC CONDENSER CAMPUS PARIS–SACLAY MUOTO STUDIO D’ARCHITECTURE, PARIS

LUCA Lectures

Lecture given by Gilles Delalex

as part of the lecture spring cycle
THIS WILL FEED THAT

Founded in 2003, MUOTO was rewarded by several prizes, such as Holcim Awards, Equerre d’Argent, Bauwelt. Muoto’s work often features minimal structures made of rough materials, as a means to combine different activities, and merge economical as well as aesthetic issues. Vertical diversity as an articulation between building and city scales is a recurrent figure in Muoto’s projects.

The Public condenser Campus Paris-Saclay is a shared public facility, hosting a mix of indoor and outdoor activities and encouraging the encounter of various populations living close to one another, but rarely meeting.

Gilles Delalex (1972) is a French architect, living and working in Paris, co-founder with Yves Moreau of Studio Muoto. He holds a European Master in urban planning and a doctorate of art from the University of Art & Design Helsinki. He is an associate researcher at the LIAT (laboratory of research on infrastructures, architecture and territories) since 1998 where he coordinates an axis of research on the imaginary of infrastructures. He has taught at the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées in Paris and various schools of architecture. He is now a professor at the School of Architecture of Paris-Malaquais where he heads the department THP (Theory, History, Project). He is the author of the book “Go with the Flow: Architecture, Infrastructure, and the Everyday Experience of Mobility”, and various papers on the theme of hypermodernity.

In its international series LUCA LECTURES successfully running since 1995, LUCA Luxembourg Center for Architecture organises a cycle of four international lectures entitled THIS WILL FEED THAT, in collaboration with the Master in Architecture of the University of Luxembourg. From February to May 2019, this cycle focuses on architecture’s impact on the urban tissue and development and presents a few purposefully chosen projects. Each of the four planned lectures is devoted to one architect and one project.
