Building its first building in an architectural school is a risky business, especially when its architects were sitting on its benches just a few years previously. PAN ARCHITECTURE has delivered a modular extension to Marseille’s Architecture School. By offering evolving work space, the project has drawn on an effective industrialized construction process as an answer to considerable regulatory and budgetary constraints. Standing on a high platform to take full advantage of exceptional views towards the famous Parc National des Calanques, the project unites the three ground-level workshops in simple, autonomous volumes connected by a gallery that runs along the southern façade and reinterprets the campus’ passageways. In the form of a vine arbor, it is a multiple and flexible space good for working outdoors and shared between the workshops.
