RE-DESIGN OF THE GRAND PARQUET HORSE EVENTING ARENA, FONTAINEBLEAU
Low Energy building – Wooden construction – Landscaping
The « landscape-building » at the heart of this project, has been generated by the ‘morphing’ – or modelling – of an embankment. Envisaged as a giant sloping bank of wood and climbing flowers, the building shape borrows from existing forms on this site.
Instead of creating a ‘building’ in the classic sense of the term, this intervention follows the natural lay of the land. Blurring the building into the landscape creates a functional, conceptual and formal continuity of space.
