The context of tensions (economical difficulties, political powerlessness, environment emergency) and the deep transformation of our profession (development of alternative production modes - conception-realization, PPP-, necessity of large expertises due to the growth complexity of the created object), are a major challenge for architects.
This challenge needs two essential qualities : tenacity and agility. They suggest, within education in Architecture Schools, a primary base : agility, expressed through the complementarity of disciplines present in the architecture field. And tenacity, revealed by the enthusiasm these foundation years have conveyed.
Urged to defy their theoretical knowledge with reality, Mathieu Chazelle, Simon Pallubicki, and Brice Piechaczyk, choose to associate, convinced of the energy that the collective imbues and of the fruitful confrontation of ideas.
Thus was founded in 2003, Enia architectes.
Using our previous professional experiences as a support to our architecture training (Simon worked for many years as a cabinetmaker, Brice and Mathieu as engineers), we decided to simultaneously invest several areas of our discipline: in project management of course, but as well in teaching (Brice at l’Ecole Polytechnique, Mathieu at the Architecture School of Paris Val-de-Seine and Simon at the Architecture School of Paris Belleville) and in applied research.
