Pierre-Alain Dupraz architecte — La topographie en architecture



Pierre-Alain Dupraz architecte
La topographie en architecture

Past: April 21 → May 17, 2017

The projects Pierre-Alain Dupraz has designed and built most recently may be of very different natures, but they all have one thing in common — the relationship between the building and the topography of the site.

The ways in which these structures are imbedded is shaped just as much by the setting as by the construction methods used or the desire to optimize interior spaces and views.

Whatever the building, whether it is a footbridge, a prefabricated modular home, a crèche, a school, a health and social center, an extension to a villa or a bed & breakfast, the surrounding topography is inseparable from the project; sometimes, it may even become its central theme.

Presented projects :
  • Saint-Jean crèche, Geneva
  • Extension to a villa, Vandoeuvres
  • Health and social center, Rolle
  • Prefabricated modular villa, Collonges-sous-Salève, France
