Christian Dupraz

The interdisciplinary practice of Christian Dupraz falls within the problems of living cities. He undertakes experimentation in the questions of form, distance and commitment, by the project and by occasional adverse situations, an architecture of experience that finds its value in the precision of the resources available and its strength of simplification. The constant dialogue with the historical, technical and cultural context allows the recognition of a singular architectural style.
