Axel de Stampa and Sylvain Macaux are two architects graduated from the Ecole d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville. They get there ideas by meeting people and contemporary culture.
With 1 week 1 project, Axel de Stampa and Sylvain Macaux challenged themselves to produce one « spontaneous architecture project » per week in 2013, i.e. 52 projects. They finally produce 25 projects. Today in new opportunities, they continue the adventure with different frequency.
No matter what the space, whether it be urban, rural or digital, there is always something new to offer about it. Its possibilities for the future are waiting to be borne out : to make it more of a leisure-time area, to bring out dramatic emotions, to put the public back in the center, and endless others. It’s up to us to give it a new identity and reveal the place for what it is.
Our process will be based on actual observations from daily life. 1W1P identifies a site, puts a diagnosis forward and makes a proposal that will involve an architectural project. There is one rule only : to propose spontaneous and open projects.
This work in progress is a collective enterprise : by calling upon different people, we mix a truly multidisciplinary practice with our desire to hear from different viewpoints.
