" Space is the breath of art. "
(Wright F. L.)
Through the diploma project, we have proposed the Design Research Department of the Geneva School of Architecture (Haute école du Paysage, d'Ingénierie et d'Architecture). The proposed project comes in response to both the School's need for a new headquarters and the need for an educational pole in the new developing area Praille-Acacias-Vernets.
The project is located on "Route des Jeunes" in a former industrial area of Geneva, separated from the central part of Geneva by the Arve River.
The major causes of the changes in architecture are the emergence of new human needs that bring new architectural programs that are needed by the emergence of new technologies and building materials. Architectural research can be directly related to practice, cooperation between disciplines and simulation and testing of projects in an environment generated by accentuating the requirements of a new paradigm of social evolution.
