Moussafir Architectes


Business Description
Our projects focus on new construction and restructuring in the fields of culture, education and housing. They are part of an experimental approach with the main themes related to the use, the indoor-outdoor ratio, thickness and the material, and a mnemonic dimension of the practice space. We advocate an expressive architecture that generates serene spaces regulated by a rigorous geometry. A playful architecture which expresses the volume setting of games breaking of scale, interiorities on, or structural paradoxes. Architecture strangely familiar and familiarly strange marked by the emphasis on course , to materiality , the complexity , the spacing, the Interiority and the Ethics. An architecture that is a source of questioning for those who live and travel.

COURSE : Architecture is the art of punctuating the space of berries and thresholds materializing the transition from inside to outside.

MATERIALITY : architecture is less a matter of image that makes sense, in both senses of the term: sense and experience the space through the five senses.

COMPLEXITY: architecture must express the complexity of reality instead of simplifying it. Its role is to sublimate the real rather than comply.

SPACING : Spacing before the architecture is to be filled: let it happen to the vacuum before winning as an icon. Interiority : even if the architecture proceeds the inside out, interiority is never absolute: it is relative and paradoxical.

ETHICS : aesthetics without ethics is the ruin of architecture.
