PROFILE

MANUELLE GAUTRAND ARCHITECTURE is a Parisian based architecture firm founded by Manuelle Gautrand in 1991.

Manuelle Gautrand is the principal architect and director of the agency. Marc Blaising, partner, financial and administrative director has been involved in the general management of the agency since 1992.

The team of over 15 architects develops projects for public contracting authorities as well as private firms both in France and abroad. Under the leadership of Manuelle Gautrand, each architect-project manager is in charge of a project.

The two-level 300 sqm office is located in the Bastille neighborhood of Paris.

The firm’s poetic architecture embraces the endless variety of forms and colors, using the most contemporary methods of planning in a variety of areas ranging from cultural facilities to residential, commercial and office buildings.

To “Re-enchant the City” and thus to bring emotion, to reinvent, to renew, to innovate and to propose the unexpected answers, to be bold and plural are the founding principles of the architecture of Manuelle Gautrand. The architecture, her architecture is what poetry was to Saint John Perse: “the luxury of being unaccustomed”. At the core of the process of creativity lies the approach to each new project through the spirit of “blank page”, with no à priori. Yet all her projects express a specific relationship to the site: a desire to revive it and enchant; a deep commitment to working on the programs entrusted to the firm, make them even more efficient, more malleable and more unexpected… The project must each time become a unique and symbolic encounter between the site and the program.

 

Strategies

In her approach to architecture, Manuelle Gautrand explores the crisis of modernity, in which ‘our rich and sated industrialised society is torn between extreme modernity and a reactionary return to the past’. Manuelle Gautrand has devised pairs of opposites to address this threat: Her thought is on the side of disobedience, boldness and plurality as remedies against replication -these things are the founding elements of her architecture and her approach to programmes. The lesson contained in these remedies are summed up in a number of her remarks: if ‘innovation is always based on disobedience’, we should ‘mark the change by our way of representing our civilisation’, ‘work within discrepancies’, take ‘the risk of building’ and test ‘our emotions and desires to the utmost!’.

To bring people into this world and – more important still – to open it up to them, Manuelle Gautrand employs different strategies, which are themselves divergent.

In fact, it is their divergence that suits them to the function of unmasking and it is what makes her projects very different one from the other.

This diversity also derives from the attention she brings to bear on programmes, on the many and varied ways she appropriates and interprets briefs in order to work.

This process of analysis, interpretation and even deformation of the programme, which in all her projects precedes any aesthetic choice, leads her to deploy her strategies.

These different strategies are all based on figures proper to Manuelle Gautrand, and which constitute her highly personal aesthetic discourse.

(Extract of a critic text by Alice Laguarda)

 

 

MANUELLE GAUTRAND ARCHITECTURE est l’agence d’architecture crée par Manuelle Gautrand en 1991. 

Manuelle Gautrand est l’architecte principale de l’agence, elle est assistée par Marc Blaising, son associé, Directeur Général de l’agence depuis 1992. En 2011, Olga Vasiljeva a rejoint l’agence en tant que chargée de communication et marketing.  

L’équipe de plus de 20 architectes développe les projets pour des grands clients publics et institutionnels que privés, en France et à l’étranger. Chaque architecte est en charge d’un projet, sous l’autorité et la responsabilité de Manuelle Gautrand.

Les locaux de 300m² sont situés sur deux niveaux dans le quartier de la Bastille à Paris.   

L’architecture poétique de l’agence s’exprime dans la variété infinie des formes et des couleurs, en utilisant les méthodes les plus contemporaines de la conception dans des  domaines très variés allant des équipements culturels aux bâtiments résidentiels, commerciaux et des bureaux.

“Ré-enchanter la ville” et ainsi émouvoir, réinventer, renouveler, innover et proposer des réponses inattendues dans l’audace et la pluralité, tels sont les principes fondateurs de l’architecture de Manuelle Gautrand. 

L’architecture, son architecture est ce que la poésie était pour Saint John Perse: “le luxe de l’inaccoutumance”. 

Au cœur du processus de création est une approche à chaque nouveau projet à travers un esprit de “page blanche”, volontairement initiée et sans aucun à priori. Pourtant,  tous ses projets expriment un rapport spécifique au site: l’envie, à chaque fois, de le réanimer et de l’enchanter, la volonté de travailler profondément sur les programmes qui sont confiés à l’agence, les rendre plus performants encore, plus malléables et plus inattendus… Chaque projet est à chaque fois une rencontre unique et emblématique entre un site et un programme, une rencontre à inventer et à réinventer. 

 

Stratégies

La réflexion de Manuelle Gautrand explore la crise de la modernité : « notre société industrialisée riche et repue est partagée entre une modernité extrême et une réaction de retour vers le passé ». Manuelle Gautrand pose des couples d’oppositions qui traduisent cette menace : son projet est de privilégier les pôles de désobéissance, d’audace, de pluralité, comme arrachements au risque de naturalisation, éléments fondateurs de son architecture et de la réflexion sur le programme. 

La leçon de cet arrachement nous est donnée dans ces réflexions : si « l’innovation naît toujours d’une désobéissance », il nous faut « marquer le changement dans la représentation que nous avons de notre civilisation », « creuser l’écart », prendre « le risque de construire », tester « jusqu’au bout nos émotions, nos envies ! ».

Pour faire entrer les hommes dans cet univers et surtout pour maintenir cet univers ouvert, Manuelle Gautrand va adopter des stratégies différentes, elles-mêmes divergentes. Ce qui rend les projets très différents les uns des autres. Cette diversité est aussi profondément reliée à l’attention portée aux programmes, à l’appropriation et à l’interprétation très variées que Manuelle Gautrand en opère. 

Le travail d’analyse, d’interprétation voire de déformation du programme, qui précède toute orientation esthétique dans les projets, conduit l’architecte vers ses stratégies. 

Ces stratégies différentes s’appuient sur des figures propres à Manuelle Gautrand, qui constituent un discours esthétique très personnel. 

(Extrait d’un article critique d’Alice Laguarda)
