Town and Concrete Creative Studio

Town and Concrete Creative Studio

Town and Concrete is architect Cyril Lancelin who started this creative studio in 2016. Mr Lancelin practices *Parametric design. (in layman’s terms: He creates his designs with geometrical shapes on which he sets a bunch of calculations, or algorithms, loose) Lancelin creates projects; he imagines art Installations and private houses. We feel that on one hand they look friendly, almost childlike or made for children, and on the other hand they seem brutalist 1970s monsters. The “Green Chapel”, for instance, is an inflatable one, just as House “hemi” it is ‘situated’ in Normandy, France. The installation ‘chain’ is travelling from place to place (we guess it’s inflatable as well). The House ‘hill’; an outdoor shaded patio with parametric walls as limits, is imagined in Los Angeles, USA.

We aren’t quite sure how many of these creations are actually made, because we only could find renderings made by ‘Town and Concrete’, (that answers our question probably) although the latest work “knot” seems to be: see that on designboom.com

The House of Pierre Cardin in Théoule-sur-Mer

Yes! the fashion people got invited again to watch a resort season fashion show at a breathtaking location: Palais Bulles in Théoule-sur-Mer, France.

This huge house, at the Cote D’azur, is designed by architect Antti Lovag, commissioned in 1975 by the industrialist Pierre Bernard.
The present house owner is fashion designer Pierre Cardin.
The huge Barbapapa-like Palais Bulles was used as venue for the Dior Resort 2016 fashion show (on the 11th of May 2015). We posted earlier on the house of Bob Hope in palm springs which was used for the Louis Vuitton resort 2016 fashion collection, an equally dream-like location. But maybe we like the house of Pierre Cardin more because it’s pink and friendly. Uhmppff; We will refrain from further architectural comments.

We did find info on the web, if you’re interested in the building and want to see more images surf to the following sites;
