In this latest photoset, photographer Laurian Ghinitiou turns his lens toward JDS Architects’ Maison Stéphane Hessel, a recently-completed, competition-winning mixed-use building in Lille, France. Containing space for a 70-cradle nursery, a 200-bed youth hostel and an office for socioeconomic innovation, the expressively playful building has been designed to respond to the three stages of human growth, from birth, through adolescence and into adulthood. The building volume lifts at its entrances to create public space and invite the entire community to use the building as a retreat from the bustling city, while inside, carved spaces with built-in, soft-edged furniture provide the ideal setting for learning and development.

The official opening date for Caen's new public library, designed by Rotterdam-based practice OMA, has been slated for January 13, 2017. The Bibliothèque Alexis de Tocqueville will serve as the main library for the metropolitan region of Caen la Mer (in Normandy, France), with 12,000sqm of freely accessible multimedia space. Positioned on the tip of a peninsula that extends from the city to the English Channel, the site is part of a larger area of redevelopment. The ambition is for the library to become "a new civic center" for the city.

A team consisting of MVRDV, ALL + Giboire has won a competition for the project Ilot de l’Octroi, a new residential redevelopment in the city of Rennes, France that will transform the area into a socially adhesive green community along the Ille et Vilaine rivers.

The complex offers green balconies, loggias and terraces, with trees and greenery from the public square connecting upwards following the curve of the façades..

The Ensemble Immobilier Tour Maine-Montparnasse (EITMM) has selected 7 notable firms to continue to the second round in a competition for the renovation of Tour Montparnasse in the Montparnasse district of Paris, France.

Often cited as one of the architecture world’s most hated buildings, Tour Montparnasse has been criticized for its discordance with the Parisian urban landscape – just two years after its completion, new buildings over seven stories high in the city centre were banned, leaving the tower as an alien presence on the skyline.

With the launching of the competition, the EITMM hopes to transform Tour Montparnasse into a beloved landmark with a complete renovation of the facade, the building entry and all interior spaces. The budget for the project is estimated to reach over 300 million Euro ($330 million USD), and will be funded in entirety by the building owners.
