About the Speaker
Manuelle Gautrand was born in Marseille (France) and obtained her graduate diploma in Architecture from the “Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Montpellier”. In 1991 she set up her practice; she lives and works in Paris. As the principal architect at Manuelle Gautrand Architecture, she is responsible for the design and construction of a diverse range of buildings, including cultural facilities (theaters, museums, cultural centres), offices, housing, commercial and leisure facilities, etc.
She works for large public clients and institutions as much as for private clients, in France and abroad. “Re-enchant the city” and thus to bring emotion, to reinvent, to renew, to innovate and to propose the unexpected answers, to be bold and plural are the founding principles of the architecture of Manuelle Gautrand.
