An Opening on Paris and a keystone for the community.This mixed-use building with 30 housing units for young workers and offices for Patronage Laïque, a guardian association in Paris’ 15th arrondissement, is a recently delivered project by the MAB+LAPS team for the RIVP Régie immobilière de la Ville de Paris. Located on the corner of Avenue Felix Faure and rue Tisserand, the building sits in the varied environment of the Boucicaut development zone with its orthogonal buildings and Haussmannian vestiges which dot this neighbourhood with industrial accents. Occupying the typical Parisian street-corner lot, the building marks the neighbourhood with its luminescent front facade day and night.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyA Mediterranean ResponsePatronage Laïque was historically located on this plot on Avenue Felix Faure; by 2010, it became clear that the offices were unfit for purpose. The RIVP called for a design competition for a new building that was to house not just the original program but also 30 studio apartments for young workers. The competition was won by a team composed of two young architecture firms, MAB and LAPS. Their holistic approach highlighted the relationship between city and public space by establishing a strong bond and continuity with the interior of the plot, placing the accent on its public facility character by offering an identifiable landmark.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe proposition fosters user-friendliness by creating generous meeting places and favouring an opening onto the city. It responds to the project management’s desire to underscore the accessible and populist nature of this place in order to maintain proximity to its residents. Save this picture!Floor PlanTwo programs in one envelopeThe building succeeds in extending several distinct levels while remaining in the same envelope, integrating two identities in a principle of uniqueness; the public program of Patronage Laïque and the private housing units.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe public facility and the housing enjoy two distinct entrances. The Patronage opens wide onto Avenue Felix Faure and rises one storey from the ground floor. Its glassed-in atrium extends the public space within the building while enabling neighbours and the passers-by to glimpse at activities happening in the building.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe residence has a more discrete side entrance on rue Tisserand and extends from the second storey to the fifth.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe ground-level entrance on Avenue Felix Faure anchors the facility to the ground and the neighbourhood, endowing it the same informal, homely presence of a corner cafe. Up above, two recessed facades rise on either side of a high gap that looks down on the glass ceiling over the entrance lobby. Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThis signpost for the project is treated in translucent white glass with opalescent reflections. The 4-storey facade along rue Tisserand is treated in glazed concrete, the metallic reflections of which wed with the interior glazing. Its cadence is established by rectangular windows of varying dimensions and a recessed volume creating irregular modules.Save this picture!SectionLight Light is one of the project’s key components. The lobby’s surfaces take a majestic turn with light penetrating from overhead and from the sides. A choice that is even more pronounced at night when the back-lit facades of the building’s prow make the facility look like a magic lantern. A hallmark for the neighborhood and a benchmark on the avenue.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyProject gallerySee allShow lessGinko Eco-Quarter / La Nouvelle AgenceSelected ProjectsBarajas Social Housing Blocks / EMBTSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:72 Félix Faure Avenue, 75015 Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Red sand fills the cracks, representing human trafficking victims

After seeing the yard signs TCU IJM placed throughout campus, Pluff believes this is a powerful statement.Signs throughout campus explain the purpose of the red sand. Photo by Olivia Wales.“I think that [the red sand] is a great subconscious reminder of the problems that others face. When you’re in school, it’s easy to let the idea of human trafficking slip through the cracks,” he said. First-year nursing major Elizabeth Rizzuto agreed that the message is effective once students are aware of it. “The sand is everywhere, and in some places there’s less than others,” said Rizzuto. “I feel like this is a good representation of human trafficking.”Other students remember the project and its message from previous years. Mason Priess, a senior kinesiology major, said he immediately remembered the purpose of the red sand and believes it has a powerful message. Photo by enditmovement.comThe purpose of the red sand is to start conversations about human trafficking, which has proven successful.These conversations will be continued today with IJM students tabling at the Founders Statue, drawing red X’s on their hands as part of the national End It movement, and encouraging other students to text or tweet their senators through the Speak Up campaign.“We have the responsibility to speak out and stand up for those who can’t do so for themselves,” said Jordan Jones, sophomore social work major and IJM member. “Putting out red sand was such a small but exciting way to shine a light on those who deserve all of our help.” ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more
