MdP is the first C2C (Cradle to Cradle) building in France. A regenerator of a former factory, it is an economic, cultural and environmental activator. The MdP (House of the Project) hosts meetings, exhibitions, calls for tender, as needed to reactivate the 1.000 Ha area into the circular economy. It is also improving soil and air conditions, eating up the chemicals left over from former industrial activity.
There were no earthworks, using driven piles that may be recovered; the structure and facades are designed for disassembly and reuse; materials are biodegradable or recyclable, with zero harmful chemicals; sanitation generates nutrients, with the chimneys of three dry toilets as a main feature of the facade; landscaping cleans the soil; the building feeds on clean energies, with controlled solar exposure and the principle of the thermal onion; technology reuse is easy, the designers call it 'superfurniture': mobile equipment units to provide a specific function to any space.

This extension to the Virus Reference Laboratory was built on a restricted site in University College Dublin. It plays a significant role in the relationship between the central university buildings and the surrounding landscape, in particular the lake directly below it. Laid out with offices above and a laboratory, canteen and meeting facility on the ground floor, it is everywhere concerned with being in landscape and with the interpretation of landscape. At a local level, one side is framed by a rational triangular shape on the ground plane - the inner edge is intimately tied around a small Japanese garden. The plan is simple: open space with a coloured core which can be glimpsed in the round as one moves around the building. Additional height to parapets gives it a cube-like proportional muscularity: the elevations are clad in a skin of abstract interlocking and overlapping shapes in which glazing and timber panels project and recede from the main surface.

Refurbishment of two existing office buildings, with an additional wing for small apartments, creating a new ensemble. A new parking space beneath the yard allowed to create an attractive courtyard with playground.

In the history of architecture it is rare to find examples of roads built entirely by the same architect. We often see urban projects divided into 'slices' of 50 to 60 houses under the guise of "architectural diversity." Hamonic+Masson won the Camille Claudel project in 2013 having proposed a global and unitary strategy: diversity is a question of form and typology, and not simply style. The project is organised around 7 buildings on 2 separate plots linked by a public road. The morphology of the buildings develops in a way that provides each apartment with multiple views of the Seine and maximum sunlight exposure. The buildings interact in a way that creates collective spaces overlooking the new road. The architect has responded to the search for identity within the collective and provided differentiation by proposing multiple, varied exterior spaces and numerous typologies. The facades are clad in metallic lace with varied motifs, which give an identity to this new neighbourhood. Address Rue Camille Claudel 92110 Clichy France
