Simone Veil student residence, Paris – France. AAVP Architecture

This building with distinctive architecture is one of the latest additions to the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris, located in the 14th arrondissement. Created by Atelier d’Architecture Vincent Parreira for Espacil Habitat, this imposing 7-storey building presents for the photographer’s eye two particularly striking elements: a wing entirely on stilts and a multi-material facade (from bottom to top: frosted glass, larch cladding and perforated sheet metal).
