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

*”Parametric design is a paradigm in design where the relationship between elements is used to manipulate and inform the design of complex geometries and structures./ Parametric design is a process based on algorithmic thinking that enables the expression of parameters and rules that, together, define, encode and clarify the relationship between design intent and design response.” (knowledge from wikipedia)
