With the support of the French Embassy to Canada and the Cultures France agency, Carleton University will welcome French architect Isabel Herault in Ottawa on Wednesday, November 7 at 6:00pm. Isabel Herault will give a lecture in English : “Parallels – Nature, Body, Skin”.
Isabel Herault was born in 1963. She studied at the School of Architecture in Grenoble (French Alps) and received her degree in June 1987. She began her career in Parisian agencies such as Architecture Studio (1988) and J.P.Pargade (1989). In 1991 she founded her own practice in Grenoble, Herault Arnod Architectes, with associate Yves Arnod.
Isabel Herault has been teaching (4th year-students) at the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris since February 2004. She is also in charge of a French-Argentinian double-diploma developed by the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture and the Belgrano University in Buenos Aires.
Isabel Herault was a member of the Board of the Maison de l’Architecture in Grenoble between 1999 and 2003, and a member of the Board of the School of Architecture in Grenoble between 2001 and 2005. She is a “Chevalier” (Knight) in the French Order of Arts and Letters.
Isabel Herault’s many projects (arenas, libraries, museums, housing and working spaces…) are especially visible in Grenoble. They emphasize Isabel Herault’s favorite themes : nature and the environment, the reference to the human body and movement, the “skin” of the building. Among the most recent works of the Herault-Arnod agency, are the headquarters for French ski manufacturer Rossignol, the conversion of the 9/9 bis pits in Oignies, the GMCD (Multimedia Traffic Management System) for the Grenoble metro area, the bicycle building, etc.
Isabel Herault has given many lectures in France, Canada, Romania, Portugal and Argentina. Her projects have been featured in many prestigious exhibits in Paris (Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine and Pavillon de l’Arsenal) and in biennials in Venice (Italy), Santiago (Chile) and Buenos Aires (Argentina)."
