Architecture-Studio is a French architecture practice based in Paris, Shanghai, Beijing and Venice. The company principle of Architecture-Studio is the collective conception. From the very beginning, the practice has believed in the virtues of exchange, crossing ideas, common effort, shared knowledge and enthusiasm. Architecture-Studio believes in a socially engaged architecture. This approach is nourished by the numerous worldwide achievements made over the last forty years, and by a constant attention to the quality of public spaces and new uses. Based on collective work and shared knowledge, Architecture-Studio aims to favour dialogue and debate, to transform individual knowledge into increased creative potential.
