Vice President of the House of Architecture Ile de France.
I studied architecture at UCL in Tournai (Belgium), at TU Karlsruhe in Germany, and urban planning at ENSA Lille. In parallel, I learned photography at the House of Culture Tournai. In 1997, I worked in London and Warsaw for the Ministry of Economy and Finance.
I worked for two years in Abidjan as an architect, partly for humanitarian projects.
I live and work in the Paris region, associated with Cyrille Hanappe to form AIR architecture office in 2001. We realize mixed urban projects, innovative housing, public buildings and integrate co-design with inhabitants in all our projects.
Since 2016, I am also Secretary General of Actes & Cités, an association for slum clearance and refugee reception.
In parallel, I continue a research at Ecole d’Architecture de La Villette about the valorization of the land by the users expertise in operations of urban prefigurations.
