With its new “Off the record” section, AA gives the floor to architects through short Q&As. Today, focus on Jean-Benoît Vétillard, founder architect of Jean-Benoît Vétillard agency, who agreed to answer AA’s questions. Next one in two weeks!
How I imagine my profession in twenty years
Let’s stay focused on 2017.
My advice to a young architect
Know when to stop. Travel, do something completely different, learn and come back.
What I would like to pass on to my associates
Rigor, descriptive geometry and a taste for good quality work.
The new-comer architect to keep an eye on
I taught at ESA among the Extrapolations Métropolitaines workshop (with Reza Azard), and I was impressed by a lot of young graduates. To be continued…
The other job I would have liked to practice
A book, an object or a work of art I particularly love
Jardin – Yuichi Yokohama.
