Architecture, the pandemic and the future of design: Tectône Architectes

In only a few months, everything has changed completely. Even the world of architecture. In search of possible new scenarios, Floornature opens the discussion of a new approach to design for a time of public health emergency, publishing a series of interviews with architects all over the world. How are the big studios organising their work, and what has been the impact of the current situation on smaller architectural practices? What does it mean to design infrastructure, cultural centres and living spaces while avoiding social contact?

Here are the architects’ responses, some in text form and others in videos, in the usual style of our portal.

Housing in Ivry by Tectône Architectes

After a period of five years between the initial plans and the end of construction, Tectône Architectes has finally completed the Housing in Ivry residential complex. The architecture, comprising six buildings of different heights connected in an architectural unicum, takes its name from the homonymous area on the outskirts of Paris and is characterised by an outer shell of cream-coloured exposed brick, with an assortment of different textures as a way of enhancing the aesthetics of the entire complex. The 61 living units proposed by Tectône won the tender advertised by the client, OPH Ivry, thanks to their use of brick, in a combination of durability, stability and aesthetics.
