Sou Fujimoto Architects has revealed its competition-winning proposal for a Paris campus.
The firm teamed up with local architects Manal Rachdi Oxo and Nicolas Laisné Associates for its Ecole Polytechnique design.
Based at the Université Paris-Saclay campus, the building unites six prestigious Parisian schools: a grand atrium will be full of greenery, with a glazed façade opening out to the park, connecting with nature and fostering a sense of openness.
The team said “the building is seen as an open space revealing the activities taking place in its heart and stands as an architectural and academic emblem of the future neighbourhood”.
