David Chipperfield enlarges the HEC School of Management in Paris


With a staggered facade 126 meters long, David Chipperfield has given the prestigious HEC School of Management in Paris a new gateway building. Located in the Jouy-en-Josa campus in the Versailles district, 16 kilometers from the center of the capital, the 9,500-square-meter building set to house the institution’s MBA program sets back its modules from the line of the facade in order to give it a sense of motion and create recess spaces in the manner of fragmented courtyards. Winner of a competition held in 2008, the project distributes the classrooms and auditorium around a large foyer, which crosses one of the main arteries of the university complex and connects with the rest of its facilities.
