Clément Blanchet is a French architect, teacher and critic, actively practicing in the fields of architectural theory, urbanism, and cultural investigations. He collaborated with Rem Koolhaas from 2004 to 2014, during which he was an Associate and Director of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) France. He founded Clément Blanchet Architecture (CBA) in May 2014 in Paris, after studying, living, and working internationally for more than 15 years. The practice is structured as a laboratory, researching, informing and generating architecture and urbanism in all its forms. In July 2017, Blanchet was appointed chief architect of the Annecy area. His international experience reflects in the office activity: from being invited to international competitions in USA, Asia and Europe to currently designing a masterplan and a hotel complex in Tbilisi and a new urban development in Shenzhen and Shanghai. In France the office has been focusing on education issues through several winning competitions. In March 2021, CBA won the international competition for the Headquarter of the Sicilian Region in Palermo, Italy.

This lecture is open to the general public.
