LAN Architecture | T6C

Concept & Competition LAN Architecture | T6C

LAN Architecture | T6CThe T6C plot is a tripartite experience, involving a superposition of programs, structural principles, scales, façade treatments, and links to public space. The urban strategy is modeled on the perception of three buildings: the T6C building must complete a defined urban front on Avenue de France, consisting of a perspective starting from the Simone de Beauvoir footbridge and through the National Library of France. Finally, linking Rue Du Chevaleret and the green promenade with the sunken Halle Freyssinet creates a new angle of view against the building.

LAN Architecture | T6CThe framework for this exercise proved to be a four-level beam, based on point supports, and with three additional floors. The matrix is a rectangular plan recessed at its center, forming a large funnel shape that measures 18 by 25 meters. The first part contains a public program, the second, workspaces, and the third, shared spaces (restaurants, etc.).

LAN Architecture | T6CThe simplicity of the plan opposes the rich and meticulous work of defining and writing each element of each façade of each space. The desire to understand interiority and exteriority guided the research on materiality as two different situations, because of their distinct spatial qualities in terms of scales and functions.

LAN Architecture | T6CFar from being translated into an opaque and dense mass, the biased compactness has allowed the emergence of an intangible object; an architecture made of lightweight glass and finely hatched steel. In addition to opening a “window” of the city and enabling users to enjoy the scenery, the interplay of transparency and light creates a subtle landmark that is visible from the bridge.

The new campus of TAC SEV is built across from the existing property of Tarsus American College (TAC). Considering its proximity to the historic context of the school, the new campus is conceived, as a design principle, a part of the TAC campus it is separated from by a road that traverses the premises.
