From the architect. Designed by architect Edouard François, Eden Bio housing complex includes 100 housing units, 52 parking spaces, artists' studios, along with community gathering spaces for local activities. The architect created a contemporary design with a pastiche of old Paris style.

The project is somewhat a maze of stairs, a mixture of concrete and wood latice, coupled with vertical timber extensions gracing the exteriors of the housing units. The wood fencing lining the sidewalk somehow seems to work well with the colors of terra cotta in the roofing and window boxes, and varied shades of gray as siding.

if the author tell me they are built from recycle material... it will be a excellent project based on my opinion

@James & Allan
it might be worth checking out the scheme design images to understand why it looks the way it does. As you say it looks 'under construction' and it actually is, as in time the plants will grow and the facades will become lush with vegetation.

R. Girardin · November 20, 2010

This is a what we frenche call a publicitary "coup".

Everyone is talking about ecological houses, so he gaves the stereotype of a low tech/cost thing and design it in a very rude way to say : "hey look i made it look like emergency architecture", like if design was something only for the bloody rich people of this planet who rules the world.

Anyway, edouard francois is always in this kind of shoking images, and it seems it's working : i'm loosing my time writing about him..

Allan · November 20, 2010

It's like under construction. I wouldn't live there, although one side of the facades seems nice.

James · November 20, 2010

The main image reminds me more of a shanty town in india than anything else
