Biography and career

Olivier de Coux



"To exploit the multiple possibilities offered by a line that develops under the constraint of a given space."


Is it not the expression of the architect's essential work to build a space? To develop it and to structure it by giving the illusion of freeing oneself from the constraints of the laws of physics? 


t can also be seen as a parallel to the literary works of Perec and the Oulipians who conquered freedom, apparently without restraints, only at the cost of automatic submission to a set of extreme constraints.


We also perceive a distant echo of Augustinian thought that we cannot consider freedom without the existence of limitations."


Mr. Louis Doucet
