Why traditional architecture?
The use of the term "modern architecture" to describe only what comes from the "International Style" is misleading. The intention is undoubtedly to give incontestable legitimacy and forever to an almost centenary style which flourished from the 1920s. But the use of the word "modern" does not give it more legitimacy today than The word "new" gives "art nouveau".
If the International Style was a reaction against the excesses of the late nineteenth century, other styles developed in reaction to the banality of 20th century architecture, considered largely responsible for the disfigurement of our towns and villages.
The "New Urbanism" constitutes a true renaissance of traditional architecture, taking inspiration from the local languages and traditions that make our cultural diversity. Regional architectural styles result from building methods using local materials to cope with the climates and needs of people from all corners of the planet. Traditional buildings are never outdated and are therefore better suited to the construction of objects destined to last in time.
The use of classical and traditional architecture in our interventions, far from being a step backwards, is a necessary reframing on the road that led to the construction of the cities that we love so much. A rich and diverse heritage that defines who we are and what makes us unique.
Building our buildings and cities in a traditional way is the best way to build sustainably for the future and ensure an architectural heritage for those who will follow us. For this reason, we only use the traditional and traditional architectures in our projects.
