Philippe Madec, an eco-responsible approach

Philippe Madec, is a French architect, urban planner, pioneer of eco-responsibility and writer. He practices architecture in different forms: writing, research, teaching, as an architect and urban planner.

During an interview, the architect begins this way: “We must find a relationship with nature and the climate, and also ask ourselves how it is possible to detoxify ourselves from the technique while maintaining comfort”.

The meteria fits perfectly into the context, maintaining and respecting the environment, without sacrificing the comforts of everyday life.

It is not said that to live well one should know how to exploit only the central areas of a city, indeed, one should focus more on the peripheral ones. As happens in “The Mercator”, a project that fully respects the idea of reconciling respect for energy performance and the economy, despite a penalizing terrain.

There is a great need to create public and private structures, where the lack of accommodation in certain villages is a problem that is often very present.
An eco-responsible approach is crucial.

The advantages of an eco-responsible design, based on a series of points (more windows, natural ventilation, more entrances), reinforce and develop the content of a project.
The observer is led to turn his gaze on every single detail, meticulously studied and fulcrum of the realization.

The approach with which the architect wants to work is based on attention to the environment, opting for quality building practices but at controlled costs and accessible to all, in order to respond to changing lifestyles; the solvency of families of the agglomeration.
