visual arts / Visual arts, Architecture & Design / TORONTO - Architecture as a Non-Oppressive Design: A Lecture by French Architect Jacques Ferrier

The architect and urban planner Jacques Ferrier will give a lecture at Ryerson University, introducing his work and his vision for tomorrow's architecture.
 
Following his architectural training at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville and the École Centrale de Paris, Jacques Ferrier created his own architecture firm in Paris in 1993 and has since worked both in France and on the international stage. His portfolio of work includes cultural facilities (such as the France Pavilion for Expo 2010 Shanghai and the Musée de la Voile in Lorient in Brittany), showcase buildings (such as the head office of Champagnes Piper-Heidsieck & Charles Heidsieck in Reims, the head office of publishers Hachette Livre in Vanves, near Paris and the Airbus Delivery Centre in Toulouse), public buildings (notably the Collège de France in Paris and the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme in Nantes) and research centres, as well as urban development projects that chime with the ethos and philosophy of the agency: to create architecture and cities that contribute to a sustainable society.
 
His humanistic vision for tomorrow’s cities finds its full expression in the concept of the Sensual City – an urban proposal developed for the France Pavilion in Shanghai – which seeks to answer the question of what urban design and planning should today be, and which is to be continued through his mission as consultant for the design and architecture of the Grand Paris rapid transit.
