Vincent Lavergne Architecture Urbanisme was created at the crossroads between architecture and urban planning, addressing both the building of cities and the political, economic and social phenomena that result from that.
The agency has developed its professional activity around the issues of city transformation at different scales – from local to macro – and the adaptation of the urban realm against the new imperatives of sustainable development.
Its work is often solicited for complex projects where urban and architectural dimensions become inseparable: industrial reconversions, full restructurings, constrained sites in high density locations and programs with multiple parties.
Across its numerous projects, VLAU has built up recognised expertise in wood construction and bio-sourced materials, developing mixed construction programs as an alternative to the reliance on concrete that has dominated the past century.
