TITAN

1 rue buffon, Nantes, France
TITAN was established in 2011 by Mathieu Barré, François Guinaudeau, and Romain Pradeau with both a commitment to simplicity and functionality and the aim of creating a poetic response to the built environment. One focus of our work is to contribute to a shared cultural awareness in order to foster sustainable change by addressing current challenges and future needs with regard to cultural preservation in terms of material use.

Improving a community’s quality of life
Whether in a metropolis or in small communities, placemaking plays an important role for the creation of a sustainable development.

Type of project
  • Site-specific cases

In the past several years, we’ve developed several small scale projects which resulted in case studies in materiality that pushed the boundaries of our practice, and we felt that if we, as architects, share this knowledge between each other, architecture would progress faster, and we would have a greater impact when it comes to designing and programming, and fostering the identity of a specific place. On these various sites, there was a real experience of approaches mixing old and new. Such innovation often consists of respecting the existing, and finding old know-how to extract new logics from it to be able to articulate new emergent space for the community. With the increasing uncertainty of our environmental future, we believe that through sharing the research on construction and materials, one could foster the democratic participation in architecture, which would essentially contribute to the shaping of a sustainable environment and a thriving community.
