GUILLAUME ANDRÉ,

Partner, Principal Architect

 

Born in 1973, he graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Versailles. After a number of creations for private commissions and collaborations in the field of landscaping, notably alongside Pascal Cribier, he joined the Marc Mimram Agency in 2003. Also mentioned within the framework of Europan 8 on the Stavanger site in Norway, he was soon put in charge of major urban planning and architecture projects, becoming a Marc Mimram partner in 2016. Within the agency, his work has involved numerous building projects in both the submission and research phases. To cite a few examples: aquatic infrastructure, including those of Ulis and Morlaix; the headquarters of the Banque Postale, Lyon; the National Archives of Pierrefitte-sur-Seine; the Carreau des Halles, Paris; the extension of the French Open; the Stade de l’Arena 92; the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris; or the office building complex for Entrepôts Macdonald in Paris.

He contributed to the Conseil Scientifique de l’Atelier du Grand Paris alongside Yves Lion and François Leclercq, on metropolitan subjects pertaining to infrastructure. As an extension of his focus on infrastructure, he recently successively delivered the new TGV station, Montpellier Sud de France, and the “Panorama” housing complex, a bridge-building spanning railway tracks in the heart of the ZAC Seine Rive Gauche.

Currently in charge of ambitious operations such as the creation of the Vinci Headquarters in Nanterre alongside Jean-Paul Viguier & Associés and the construction of the Campus AgroParisTech on the Plateau de Saclay, he also helms some of the agency’s major projects and, in this capacity, recently contributed to the success of the consultations for the École de Design de Nantes and Hangar 105 in Rouen.

Fully engaged in the agency’s approach, associating engineering and architecture, with design placed in service to the project, to a particular perspective and specific style, he participates in the deployment of expertise and the transmission of knowledge within the agency and beyond, actively contributing to the development of the agency’s activity in favour of increasingly singular new projects.

 
 

MARTIN FOUGERAS LAVERGNOLLE,

Partner, Principal Architect

 

Born in 1979, after studying history, he switched to architecture studies in Paris, Holland, and Switzerland. A graduate of the Ecole Supérieure Nationale d’Architecture de la Ville et des Territoires in Marne la Vallée, Martin Fougeras Lavergnolle joined Marc Mimram in 2006. He became a partner in 2016.

Since then, he has provided the design and coordination of architectural projects in the fields of construction (offices, housing, sports facilities), civil engineering works, and infrastructure. We can cite the Reims Aquapark; the Narbonne Arena; Sino Bridge in Singapore, China; the Pleyel Urban Crossing; or the extension of Line 11 of the Parisian metro.

For the past ten years he has directed the French Open Renovation project, in conjunction with Michel Corajoud on the blueprint, then provided the design and coordination for the Centre National d’Entrainement de la Fédération Française de Tennis and the Simonne-Mathieu Court.

Close ties with the structural department have allowed him to provide pertinent responses to the complex projects that he undertakes – for instance the Quai de Bercy project, or the renovation operation of the Belliard site for the RATP.

 
 

RAZVAN IONICA,

Partner, principal engineer

 

Born in 1981, an engineering graduate from the École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées (2007) in France, the École Polytechnique (2003), and the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest, Romania, Razvan Ionica joined Marc Mimram in 2007 and became a partner in 2016.

Razvan is head of engineering at the agency and manages the structural design and direction of complex major projects, particularly in the field of infrastructure. These projects include many major constructions in China, such as the two bridges of Sino Singapore, the Yangzhou Footbridge, the Anyang Bridge or the Hainan Island Bridge; the Hassan II Bridge in Rabat, Morocco; or the new TGV train station in Montpellier. He is currently working on major infrastructure projects such as the Amédée Bridge that traverses the railway tracks in Bordeaux, the viaduct (600 m) extension of line 11 of the Parisian metro, and the Pleyel Saint Denis Urban Crossing.

Since 2017, he has developed research projects with the 03kN Agency that aim to introduce new techniques into the field of construction.

He participates in the agency’s transmission of knowledge through teaching missions (architecture schools of Marne la Vallée and La Villette), as well as conferences on the theme of infrastructure (London, Sao Paolo, Berlin, and Beijing).

Through his work with architects and engineers over the past twelve years, Razvan has developed a particular interpretation of infrastructure projects, which is reflected in the guiding principle of his projects, in perfect symbiosis with the agency’s DNA.
