THE ARCHITECTS (2)


In 1992, Jean-Pierre Buffi wins the international tender for the Société Générale (French 2nd largest bank) World headquarters on the Austerlitz embankment, overlooking the Seine river. Unfortunately, due due financial and regulations constraints, the project was dropped.

Between 1994 and 2000, he rebuilds Marseilles (France 2nd largest city) Vélodrôme Stadium to accommodate key matches for the 1998 Soccer World Cup, then designs the University of Vaucluse in the heart of 13th Century Old Town of Avignon, the School of Medicine & Pharmacy at the University of Normandy (City of Rouen), and the Paris-based Headquarters of French-German pharmaceutical giant Aventis.

The studio then works on large scale Urban Areas Redevelopment competitions for Stockholm (Sweden), Hamburg (downtown extension toward the harbor), Munich (new quarter development for Siemens, including office buildings, housing, shopping mall), Turin (Winter Olympic Games 2006 buildings, including World Media Village), and Boulogne, in the outskirts of Paris (upscale housing and offices on Renault car maker former site).
