VIGUIER is an international architecture and city planning practice based in Paris that designs and directs comprehensive projects in various fields such as planning program, landscape, interior design, or street furniture for public as well as private purposes.
The firm employs 150 people from 15 countries led by Jean-Paul Viguier and 12 partners. Many of their iconic works have gained international recognition, such as: the French pavilion at the Seville World Fair (1992), the France Télévisions headquarters (1998) and the Parc André-Citroën (2000) in Paris, the Coeur-Défense twin towers (2001), the Sofitel Water Tower in Chicago (2002), the McNay Museum of Modern Art in San Antonia, TX (2008) – the first-ever American modern art museum built by a French architect, the Maroc Telecom tower in Rabat (2012), the SFR campus in Saint-Denis (2013), the Majunga Tower in La Défense (2014), the Oncopole and the Institut Universitaire du Cancer in Toulouse (2014)...
These productions will soon be followed by the Europea quarter in Brussels – the remodeled site of the 1958 World Fair, the Vinci headquarters in Nanterre, the Banque de France’s hub in La Courneuve, an office tower in Casablanca, the IoT Valley in Toulouse, and Hyperion, the highest housing tower build in wood (57 meters) in Bordeaux.
Placing the architect in a constant contextual movement, many of VIGUIER’s works are part of a reflection on the connection to ancient constructions such as: the Reims library (2002) facing the Notre-Dame de Reims cathedral, the Natural History Museum in Toulouse (2008) and more recently the Canadian Embassy and the remodeling of the Chanel flagship store in Paris.
