Thomson Optronics Factory

Paris, France

This factory for electronics company Thomson Optronics, employs a modular system of arch-shaped base elements.

The design allows for a flexible building plan that can be redefined as the factory’s requirements change.

The building and its surrounding landscaping are laid out along the same orthogonal grid.
