Archikubik has been awarded with the Prize of Spanish Urbanism 2021

Archikubik has been awarded with the Prize of Spanish Urbanism 2021 by the Superior Council of Spanish Architects Associations (CSCAE) for its project at Ivry-sur-Seine, the Agrocity Gagarine Truillot.
For this edition of the CSCAE Architecture Award, 21 finalists were selected among more than 650 projects. In all, 6 prizes were given according to different values as well as 3 special distinctions (Spanish Architecture Prize, Spanish Urbanism Prize and Permanence Prize).

In the heart of Ivry-sur-Seine (Val de Marne), the urban project of the Agrocity Gagarine Truillot is a paradigmatic example of urban regeneration in a ANRU sector (area identified as priority by the National Agency for Urban Renewal).
This ZAC carried by GPA - EPA ORSA, develops the values of mixed-use, new uses, co-creation with inhabitants, what already exists, circular and supportive economy and the de-standardization of our lifestyles.
Within a peaceful neighborhood that favors pedestrian mobility, the project offers a city of proximity, united and appropriable. Public space and vegetation are an opportunity for social connection and create actual agricultural landscapes in dense urban areas.
The transitory urban planning approach, supported by the Fernand Léger Contemporary Art Gallery, has from the beginning offered a consideration around the collective memory and poetry of the place.
Presentation of the project for the CSCAE award (ES) :

And the whole ecosystem that gives this project all its richness.

Rei Martí Water Tank in Archdaily

ArchDaily published an article about the Rei Martí Water Tank, rehabilitated by Archikubik (Spain Pavilion,Golden Lion, Venice Biennale 2016)
In the former property where Antoni Gaudí built the Bellesguard Tower, there was recently discovered a big water tank, buried under a pine forest, from the end of the 19th century.
Archikubik preserved it and created an open space to the public, maintaining the magic of this underground water tank and the architectural rhythm created by the Catalan vaults and arcs every 3.5m

Inauguration of Anemone, the new generation Kley student residence in Montpellier

Thursday, May 12 took place the Anemone’s inauguration, the Kley Student Residence in Montpellier (246 beds, 6.300m2 including 500m2 of common areas), carried out by Archikubik.
The project is an example of the "well living together" thanks to its innovative uses, the quality of its spaces and regular coexistence activities: a relational building as an actor in the economic, social and environmental renewal and dynamization of the district.
In order to reduce its carbon footprint, the project proposes, on one hand, a deep consideration on the air quality thanks to a climate corridor that actively participates in the thermal regulation of the building. The planted patios with trees, hanging gardens and a generously planted rooftop allows oxygenation and renovation of the air. On the other hand, a double skin made of very light braided aluminum wires envelops the building and creates a light veil with subtle and shimmering light variations. This light covering makes it possible to avoid the use of more massive and therefore more energy-intensive metal cladding.
Art and culture are an integral part of the architecture along with the Wall of Opportunity which becomes an artistic support in relation to the artists of the city. By temporary projects over the seasons, art colonizes all floors alongside the exterior staircase and presents a real opportunity for artistic co-creation.

The team is integrated by Kley group, Sylvie Ferro, Joan Bardy, Romain Lucas, Franck Boutté Consultants, BETSO, Structures 2000, Guy Jourdan and Socotec.
