Jean-Paul Jaccaud Architectes was established in Geneva in 2004. The practice’s work is sustained by a long-term interest in interventions in complex built environments with strong specific identities. Through projects of varying scale and nature in Switzerland, Europe and the Middle East, the practice has been confronting the material wear, the gaps and the functional obsolescence of these environments in different ways, attempting with every project to establish renewed meaning with specific, precise and sustainable responses.
Jean-Paul Jaccaud graduated from the EPF Lausanne in 1995 and collaborated with Bernard Huet, David Chipperfield Architects and Herzog & de Meuron prior to establishing his practice. He was visiting professor at EPF Lausanne from 2006 to 2010 and has been visiting critic at numerous universities since 2004.
