This book is h2o architectes’ first monography. Founded by Charlotte Hubert, Jean-Jacques Hubert and Antoine Santiard, h2o architectes is a Paris-based firm working on projects of various types and scales, from housing to public space and cultural facilities. The agency includes both architects and heritage architects.
This book brings together twenty-nine projects, either completed or on-going, designed by h2o architects in the past ten years, presented according to thematic categories, which stem from the practice’s singular approach. Fanny Léglise, author, shines a light on this decade of projects through several interviews and debates with the three partners. Contributions from Miguel Mazeri (anthropologist), Bernard Tschumi (architect), and Frédéric Forte, (poet) help understand the firm’s specific approach.
