Edouard François, urban collage in France

In the commune of the northern French commune of Champigny-sur-Marne, the Urban Collage project of the Parisian studio of Edouard François proposes to stack 114 social housing units of three different types. The base of the structure is formed by rows of narrow three-story houses whose facades are clad with panels of copper and zinc or terracotta tiles; the middle section is taken up by apartment blocks; the complex is crowned by sheds with pitched roofs. The result is a reinterpretation and reorganization, one on top of the other, of the different kinds of housing typologies that coexist in the city.
