Since they established their Paris-based firm ChartierDalix in 2008, architects Frederic Chartier und Pascale Dalix have realised some fifteen buildings in France, ranging from multi-unit housing and student dormitories to schools to the transformation of a design centre for car maker Renault, a logistics hub, or office and retail spaces. Of equal importance as the actual design work is their research to ChartierDalix, in which the architects aim to bring architecture and ecosystems to harmonious concurrence. exemplified by the Biodiversity School and Gymnasium in Boulogne Billancourt near Paris which they completed in 2014. This first monograph explores ChartierDalix's visionary research and the designs derived from it, with the Boulogne Billancourt school as core of the presentation. Their intense investigation of architecture and nature and the interplay between the two is highly topical and the book a rich inspirational source for anyone interested in the future of building. Text in English and French. AUTHOR: Frederic Chartier obtained his degree in architecture from the Ecole d'Architecture de Paris-Malaquais and is a founding partner with ChartierDalix in Paris. Pascale Dalix is a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Architecture de Paris-Val de Seine (formely Ecole d'Architecture Paris-Villemin) and a founding partner with Paris-based firm ChartierDalix. 167 colour, 219 b/w illustrations
