I was honored to announce the birth of Léonard, the son of my friends Juliette and Pierre-Louis. Also a bit scared to fly over a brand new baby :)

BEL VAL SPLASH : A didactic pavilion hosting an exhibition revealed by throwing water on walls !
The Bel-Val water was one of Luxembourg’s biggest success story. It gave its name to the current Belval district but this incredible story was forgotten.
Invited to design a pavilion that reanimates the story of this water shipped worldwide, we proposed to use concrete pipes as the main constructive components, since they are the elements that transport water. These pipes are built in Luxembourg by CONTERN who assured us that they will get the pipes back and reuse them, the day the pavilion will get dismantled (no material waste).
The inner scenography is made through a partial hydrophobic treatment with stencils and will be entirely invisible until somebody throws water on it. The contrast between the dry and wet parts reveals the rich iconography of this amazing story. As the presence of water turned a banal farm into a success story, it turns here some basic concrete elements into a rich and poetic panorama.

To celebrate the five years of Leipzig's faculty of architecture and social science, I've been asked to invent something. I came up with the idea of creating a game Starting with a card game that acts as an ice breaker, the teams (formed by one architect and one social specialist), were invited to investigate how spaces and people influence each other in the city of Leipzig. I was happy to hear that the game was played at the beginning of this year with the new students. Find out more here

This article was a chance to investigate if theses adjectives were also illustrated by our built environnement. And I think they are.
