French architects Emmanuel Combarel and Dominique Marrec enjoy using material at its most solid. Their love of concretes dynamism and the plasticity of surfaces comes to the fore in this dense monograph featuring a dozen notable works, including the Monolith in Lyon, a Parisian day care centre, student residences in Epinay and collective housing in Boulogne-Billancourt. Through numerous drawings, concepts, documents and photographs, a detailed overview of each building emerges contextually confrontational and underpinned by the evolutions and mutations of our society. Includes an essay by architecture critic Philippe Trétiack and preface by Michaël Batalla.
