Event

Projet Bureau d'un oiseau. Etudiants de l'ENSA Versailles

In conjunction with the exhibition Charlotte Perriand : Inventing a New World, the Fondation introduces a weekend of architectural experimentation in collaboration with Bellastock, an association working for the promotion of places and ressources. 

 

Launched in November 2019, the call for projects entitled "Build it like Perriand" offered architecture students and recent graduates an opportunity to pay tribute to the architectural heritage of Charlotte Perriand by designing "modules for living" in Frank Gehry's building. 

 

A jury of experts chose three winning projects among the 44 entries: "Nuage workshop", "Office for a Bird" and "Symbiote". 

 

All three can be viewed at the Fondation during its Late Hours event and until the exhibition ends on 24 February 2020. 

Nuage workshop

"Nuage workshop" is a mobile bicycle repair hub. Developed as a place for people to meet and work together, the space can be adapted to different needs. Cyclists can make use of the tools available as well as enjoy the relaxation area. Inspired by Charlotte Perriand's bookcases with storage units and her kit dwellings, the Nuage workshop is a largely open space and can be transported by bicycle.

 

Team: architects from ENSAPVS, members of various associations

Programme: mobile bicycle repair workshop

Materials: timber boards, steel cable trunking, moulded plastic

Project Nuage workshop

Office for a bird

"Office for a Bird" is a place to dream, to camp in and to get close to nature. Designed for two people, the space is streamlined as much as possible: the beds become a coffee table and the roof turns into a screen. By creating a dialogue with nature and using the tatami as a unit of measurement, the Japanese influence is central to this project. Office for a Bird celebrates Perriand's approach to minimalist and modular spaces, enriched by her work in the mountains and in Japan.

 

Team: ENSA Versailles students

Programme: modular shelter and light source

Materials: timber boards, linen canvas, aluminum tubes

Project Office for a bird

Symbiote

"Symbiote" is a module for living designed entirely in harmony with nature, as a place of symbiosis and communion between the user and their surrounding natural environment. It can be moved to different locations and folds out to provide a shelter for sleeping and eating. Designed to surround a tree, Symbiote is an ideal space for people who live with respect for the environment – a modern utopia where everyone finds their balance.

 

Team: architects, visual artist, carpenter, interior designer

Programme: independent living module

Materials: brackets and timber panels, tensioners, felt
