Chartier Dalix Architects. Since its creation in 2006 by Frèdèric Chartier and Pascale Dalix, Chartier Dalix architects office directs its research towards a balance between location and projection, between what is given and what can go further. The constraints are thus considered as tools that drive the design of the project and define the uniqueness and strength of the resulting building. The act of architecture is designed as a common and multidisciplinary structure, a contextual, unifying and innovating editing.

Rewarded in 2009 by the Price of the first edition of works (ed. Le Moniteur) for a bowling pitch at Meaux, and noticed at the international competition of ideas for the implementation of the new Tribunal de Grande Instance of Paris.

The reflection that we lead rests on the confrontation between different ideas that we look to compare, and to merge them within an open and unprejudiced discussion. Each project balances the delicate chemistry between programme/cost/planning and style/integration/history. These parameters are considered as tools that feed conception, and define the uniqueness and the strength of the building which results. The act of architecture is formed from a communal and multidisciplinary work, a contextual montage that is unifying and innovative.
