Overview
In both urbanism and architecture, Atelier Arcau’s guiding principles are best described as a commitment to the arts of “living together”, sustainability and being true to the landscape. Driven by a shared appreciation of carefully planned design and implementation, the Atelier’s team, led by the architects Xavier Fraud and Julien Veyron responds to the challenges set by each context and the natural world with determination and poise. This book provides an in-depth insight into the work of the Atelier, including its award-winning designs for the Salorge Town Community Building and Atlanville restaurants, featuring comprehensive architectural documentation (photography, plans, sections, sketches, etc.), explanatory articles by expert critics that put each work into context and insights from the architects themselves.
