As part of the Interior Design department’s A to Z series, which investigates how an architectural project is led from A to Z (from inception to completion), but also explores the city from A to Z (through a series of design visits and conversations), students were recently invited to atelier Ciguë architects and designers’ practice.
Through a conversation with Ciguë’s associate director, Alphonse Sarthout, students were introduced to a series of past and current projects, given a detailed tour of their studio space and building workshop and provided with the opportunity to receive first hand insight into the realities of running and working within a design practice.
“Ciguë was founded by a group of architects, working together in partnership and in friendship since 2003. Ciguë’s common purpose is to create and produce architecture, interiors, artworks and objects that combine intellectualism with craftsmanship and intuition; head, hand and heart combined.”
Previous A to Z ‘visits and conversations’ include: the matériauthèque at Wilmotte & Associés (architecture/interior design practice); the atelier maquette at Renzo Piano Building Workshop agency; the ‘Cité Musicale’ site visit by lead architect from Shigeru Ban Architects, Japan.
Watch this space for more of A to Z to come!
