Éric Lapierre

Architecture on Stage

Chris Marker Student Residence by ELEx

Éric Lapierre joins us to discuss ELEx, his organisation coordinating architectural practice and writing.

Éric Lapierre is the principal of Éric Lapierre Experience (ELEx), a Paris based organisation that coordinates both architectural practice and writing.  ELEX's projects include the recently completed Chris Marker student dormitory in Paris, which provides housing for 365 students over a rebuilt bus depot.  Eric Lapierre has edited Identification d’une ville – Architectures de Paris, (2002); Guide d’architecture de Paris 1900-2008 (2008); and Architecture Of The Real (2004).

The Architecture Foundation, in association with the Barbican, presents Architecture on Stage – a programme of talks and debates.
