WHY I DO IT?
To offer memorable sensitive experiences into fictional architectures.
WHAT LED ME TO DO IT?
Architect, I have now decided to no longer design built spaces.
In our reality, constructions must meet regulatory standards, programs, uses ... What really attract me is not the characteristics that a building or a landscape have, but the emotions and sensations they make us experience, the feeling and the perception that we have of them.
That is why, for a year, after five years of architectural studies followed by two years of work in a scenography and architecture studio, I have been putting my know-how at the service of the construction of fictional environments that we travels the time of a film, an advertisement, a video games, an exhibition, reading a book ...
The question then is how to offer everyone the possibility of exploring these spaces that remains unbuilt.
Today, I devote my work to this question. I do my best to answer it by conceptualizing, designing, building and illustrating computer-generated spaces, territories with endless possibilities where we are confronted with new sensitive experiences.
To discover them, you have to project yourself.
WHAT DO I BELIEVE?
I am convinced that a fictional space must allow the public to project themselves into and each meaning of this word is for me a guideline:
MEANING 1. "Throw something, someone forcefully towards a place"
I believe in powerful environments, loaded with reliefs and accidents, textures, noises, smells, dirt, heat, cold, lights, dust, clouds ... because "Projecting" requires strength.
MEANING 2. "Ascribing to someone a feeling that you have yourself"
These reliefs, these accidents are elements in which everyone can identify: the evocation of a memory, a real life situation, a usual light, a smell from childhood, a feeling experienced ... "Projecting" is sharing a feeling, a sensation.
MEANING 3. "Throw, lead forward."
Literally, "Projecting" means throwing: it means working with passion and enthusiasm to make people react, to be force of proposals to exceed my client's expectations and offer them inventive solutions.
MEANING 4. "Draw, appear on a plane, on a surface, any body according to certain geometric rules"
"Projecting" is also drawing space: perspective, plan, section are geometric projections. For me, it is using the architect's tools and approach, always seeking to transcend constraints and place the user at the heart of the design.
