Druot, Lacaton & Vassal. Tour Bois le Pretre. Paris. France

The Paris periphery is unfortunately notorious for containing a large number of large scale interventions, built in the 60s and the 70s, whose architecture has been held partly responsible for the reigning social malaise. The deterioration was such that the authorities considered beginning the demolition of some of these estates to start all over again.

Demolishing so as to start from scratch is an option not without controversy, because for some this is not a solution which targets the roots of the problem. In this case, it was decided to fully refurbish this tower within the Paris city limits as the most cost-effective and sustainable solution, as opposed to knocking down the building.
