Who What How

Who :
La prairie atelier is structured around a core of four collaborators directed by Marie Eve Roques and Mathieu Pradat, founders of the workshop. To this primary crew adds up a set of external collaborators regularly solicited following projects demands. The multidisciplinarity of the actors involved and therefore the resources available is utilized internally to better understand and develop the project.

What :
La prairie atelier works on all kinds of project that relates to image or space, connected to a site, a program and a time. Its dual fied skills allows it to find the right answers to requests in order to give to the recipients, the tool, the space, the product that will be the most communicative and easily appropriated.

How :
The quality of our work outcome is the result of the attention given to understanding our clients. By adjusting specifications to the specific history of each of our clients, we define a scenario, a universe, a unifying project tale that will guide all the aesthetic, technical and financial choices of the project from study to realization.

Heat wave recommendations

- There is no need to water your lawn obsessively, it will be the first to suffer from the heat and water can hardly overcome prolonged exposure to the sun throughout the day,
- Avoid watering between 11h and 17h ,
- But sprinkle anyway: green spaces allow to cool cities !

The architecture at school

Marta is CM2 at the Ecole Saint-Victor. His class spent three weeks on an original idea of their mistress Aurélie: "Dreaming the ideal city!"
Groups of students participated in a competition of ideas on designs and that of Marta won. The following completes the experience: each group "loser" ask the winner of its integrated A concept drawing in the model, which is built by all. Teams are created by lot Lot structural work, batch equipment, gardens lot, lot networks, batch recycling cost ... etc ...).

The workshop The prairie was invited to participate in the presentation of the group project and to discuss with its protagonists, ultra-motivated community life in our cities students!
(a few drops of rain forced them to recourvir beautiful model).

Here is a short summary of the great ideas of our CM2 on the ideal city:

- One enters the city parking in the basement, where we parked his car in gasoline, we exchange by an electric car. Some wind turbines arranged above the parking supply the batteries.

- Other networks are stored in the basement, like the subway, priority routes for tris and the convoy waste. There are two kinds: those intended to be burned, and those converted into fertilizer for farmers who go outside the cities. The water is also sorted and reused for watering parks.

- Buildings, happy colors, are connected by a large slab at mid-height, friendly parks, playgrounds and swimming pool + a few shops.

- Units are organized according to the activities of people: retirees, who need summer shade are housed in the lower part of the towers.
Also, each unit comes with adjustable partitions kits: each chosen and its development.

- Terraces high towers are operated by school boards, which provide energy for common areas.

- Finally, the buildings are belted in their base by parks promenade, around which evolve only electric vehicles, including buses.
