21 rue Froment, Paris, France
Atelier CMJN (CMYK Workshop in French) is a studio at the crossroads of several disciplines: architecture, sociology, landscape architecture and environmental engineering. This combination, as a mixture of colors (C,M,Y,K) makes it possible to embrace projects in their complexity and their uniqueness. The studio is always in contact with various in order to think of new subjects, new ways of approaching our various disciplines in order to nourish its practices

The Organic School


In Search of Lost Time
Our project aims at making the borders more porous than they currently are without deleting them.

In a world facing cultural, political and environmental limits, we should accept the plurality of identities and we should transcend the fixed borders. This includes borders between people, children as well as disciplines; as for now they are strict and strongly driven on one part of the brain, the left part, rational and dividing one. We should go beyond those borders and put some more emphasis on the other side of the brain, the holistic and creative one. The borders between the different courses need to be rethought as well, especially at school. There are clear borders as for now; this should permeate a bit more. Borders between the pupils and the teachers, borders between pupils, borders between the disciplines should not disappear but should be a bit more porous. The architecture should accompany this change. The architecture of schooling should not force nor prevent, rather ‘nudge‘ the interactions towards more generosity, self and social development.


Through the source of learning it represents, the source of direct benevolent interactions, the fun schools will bring, authority will naturally emerge.
