Françoise Crémel

Françoise Crémel cultivates a discipline of the body that supports the need of bodies for the vitality of the world landscape. She is a DPLG-trained landscape designer, a research engineer at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Landscape de Versailles-Marseille, and a member of the Landscape Projects Research Laboratory (Larep). Doctor of Landscape, her thesis "Being landscape, a plural exercise" deals with the variety of possible and probable postures of the body inhabited by a thousand panoramas. The latter, unable to abandon the landscape, commits its mobility and its needs to the communal production of spaces built for a meaningful life. She is interested in the implication of the body and perception as negotiation mechanisms between the field and design.

She teaches how to carefully read a site through engagement, both physical and intellectual, to support the designer's virtue in their project choices. Involved in the sharing of work, she runs Full Contact, a landscaping company, is a member of Paris.U architecture SARL and today, with people of good will, creates Ambre (Bioregional and Ecological Domestic Workshop), a SCIC antidote against the devastation of the garden world. In contact with all movements, she keeps her feet on the ground with a practice, unwritten or described, organized by neighborhood and presence; she theorizes the permanent singularization of investigative frameworks before the last soul tells the others what happened.
