An experimental worksite (a first in the Île-de-France region) will be open to the public to serve as an introduction to the construction of a bioclimatic house using exclusively locally sourced materials obtained through short supply chains.
“Located in Fontenay-sous-Bois on a wooded plot located 100 m from the suburban commuter station of the RER A line (20 min from the center of Paris), this project, consisting in the construction/renovation of a family house, aims to raise awareness among the general public around construction-related issues in the Anthropocene era.
Thanks to the support of Pavillon de l’Arsenal and FAIRE, various kinds of exchanges between designers, builders, and visitors of the projects will be proposed in 2023 over the course of the projected 18 months of construction work, including:
- site visits allowing the public to see the gradual progress of construction work and meet with the local operators involved (both suppliers of materials and contractors)
- a ‘learning construction site’ focusing on the use of bio-sourced, geo-sourced, and re-used materials, with the educational support of green building professionals.
The unprecedented educational demonstration at a 1:1 scale will (re)create connections between professionals and private individuals around what must now become a key concern, both at the individual and collective scale, namely how can we build differently and soundly in a way that ensures that our human living areas fully respect the surrounding and global environment in which they are placed?
By sharing with the public the reality that it is possible to build with materials derived from a 100 km radius, Anatomies d’Architecture aims to highlight the wealth of resources available in the Île-de-France region and the opportunities provided by short supply chains and their local operators in the construction sector.”
Anatomies d'Architecture is a cooperative committed to ecological construction, led by :
Emmanuel Stern (co-founder): anthropologist specialized in raw earth constructions
Mathis Rager (co-founder): architect specialized in construction management
Raphaël Walther (co-founder): architect specialized in bioclimatic design
Alice Mortament (associate): architect specialized in reuse
Anatomies d'Architecture reinvents itself daily through the following three axes:
> Construction & design, for a bioclimatic architecture, 100% local, natural and reversible.
> Field research and investigations in the four corners of the territory to meet those who reinvent ecological architecture.
> Pedagogy and transmission of new knowledge in terms of eco-construction to the general public and professionals.
