Ferrier Marchetti Studio
Pauline Marchetti is a graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville and a qualified architect, as well as a professor at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. Her practice is rooted in a humanist approach, developing design and production methods based on the sensory and humanist dimensions of space - volume, materiality, light, moods. She conceived Sensual City as an incubator for the reflective journey and development process vital for the successful realisation of projects. She has championed highly collaborative inter-disciplinary working with a team including architects, designers, a philosopher, behavioural psychologist and a geographer. Pauline Marchetti is laureate of the Europe 40Under40 Award by which the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies celebrates the next new talented generation of European architects and designers. She first worked with Jacques Ferrier in 2010 when they collaborated on the hugely successful French Pavilion for the World Expo in Shanghai, since when they have developed a significant portfolio of projects combining research and architecture. The work of the studio has been the subject of several dedicated international exhibitions including ‘Impressionismus at the Architektur Galerie, Berlin; ‘Non oppressive Design’ at the DOKK1 in Aarhus and ‘A vision for the Sensual City’ in Manila, Singapore, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur. Jacques Ferrier and Pauline lectures widely, notably at the Harward Design School, University of Columbia, and the AIA Center of Architecture. Their work have been published in a wide range of prestigious supports, including and lot limited to Arca International, Details, National Geographic and the Time Magazine.
