1024 architecture (FR)

The founders of French studio 1024 architecture, Pierre Schneider and François Wunshel both studied architecture in Strasbourg and they specialize in the interaction of body, space, sound, image, hi-tech and low-tech, art and architecture.  Their work includes audiovisual installations, micro-architecture, public space works, performances, and exhibitions. During the Venice Biennial 2006, they transformed the French pavilion into an inhabited space called META-Villa with a hotel, open kitchen, bar, roof spa, and a small pool using just the scaffold construction. Their Christmas tree (Abies Electronicus) in Brussels rose to fame all around Europe.
