Jacques Ferrier is an architect and urban planner. A graduate of the Paris-Belleville School of Architecture and the Ecole Centrale de Paris, he founded his agency in Paris in 1993 and has been working in France and abroad ever since. His projects are part of the same philosophy: design an architecture and a city for a creative and sustainable society.
Jacques Ferrier is the author of numerous articles and books on architecture. His work has been the subject of monographs, notably “The architecture of Jacques Ferrier” published by Thames & Hudson, London. Jacques Ferrier is Professor. He was appointed Knight of the National Order of Merit and Knight of Arts and Letters.
Pauline Marchetti and Jacques Ferrier have collaborated since 2008 with the creation of the French pavilion for the Shanghai World Exhibition. Since then, they have developed a large number of public and private projects, combining research and architecture.
Their work has been the subject of several international exhibitions, including “Impressionismus” at the Architektur Galerie in Berlin; “Non Oppressive Design” at DOKK1 in Aarhus and “A vision for the sensual city” in Shanghai, Beijing, Manila, Singapore, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur.
The Centre de design de l'Université du Québec à Montréal devoted them a monographic exhibition, “Entre-Deux”, in the fall of 2019.
They give numerous conferences, including at the Harvard Design School at Columbia University and at the AIA Center for Architecture. Their work has been published in a wide range of prestigious publications, including Arca International, Details, National Geographic, and Time Magazine.
