Benjamin Clarens and Yann Martin | Fetch / Evaluate / Materialize
Join us for the next PCA Talk with Benjamin Clarens and Yann Martin to discuss architecture, urbanism, interior design and art:
Our practice as a 4 hands design studio started in 2005 and CUT architectures was founded in 2008.
CUT, 3 letters standing for our aim to contrast deeply with a conventionalist architectural practice and the expected positions and trends.
Breaking the boundaries between architecture, urbanism, interior design & art we are taking the inherent qualities of every of these fields in order to initiate inspiring hybrid projects. We don’t make hierarchical distinctions between an art installation, a piece of furniture, a shop, a flat, a set design, a house or a building and put the same effort with the same process: we first fetch materials, inspirations and references to legitimate our choices, we then search for the optimal plan layout and the most effective section to implement the chosen material(s). This process is key to a project for us in order to be able to create, reinterpret, divert and innovate.
Completed projects by CUT architectures include Café Coutume (rue de Babylone, Institut Finlandais, Aoyama, Osaka, and Futakotamagawa), PNY (Fbg St Denis, Oberkampf and Haut Marais) and Le Syndicat (Fbg St Denis).
