The starting point for this book is a desire to archive, classify, compile, and unveil ChartierDalix’s buildings, both big and small. Following a chronological thread, the projects present evidence of a diversity of programmes, contexts, and volumes, supported by plans and drawings that have been redrawn at the same scale for juxtaposition. The photographs, all taken some years after completion and key handover have taken place, explore the dynamics of transformation and the subtle adjustments that occur between an architecture and its inhabitants. Several recurring themes run through thetwenty-eight projects presented in these two volumes: the building envelope as an interface between interior and exterior, pathways as a means of inviting movement and freedom of action, considering the existing as fertile ground for new designs, encouraging communality, and hosting life.
