X, Y, Z - variations upon a grid
Pli Public Workshop 01 - International architecture & design competition
Winning project

This project was displayed during the Pli Public Workshop 01 exhibition held from November 2019 to January 2020, Pavillon de l'Arsenal, Paris.

This project is our submission to the international architecture and design competition Pli Public Workshop 01, which was about «obsession». We decided to focus our project on the grid, considering it as both a structural and aesthetic element, in order to design objects and spaces.
Our research project relies on two main leads:
On one hand, working with the grid (by distorting it, playing with different scales, playing with its patterns...), and therefore, exploring the whole architectural aesthetic codes that are attached to it.
On the other hand, conducting a research on natural elements and their shapes.
Thus, the core of this project relies in confronting these two very different elements: the stiffness of the grid with the elusive and free shapes of natural elements, in order to design original objects and spaces.
