A.MAG 13: BAST Bureau Architectures sans Titre/GENS Association libérale d'Architecture
Established in Toulouse in 2013, Bureau Architectures Sans Titre (BAST) operates through research-led work with an “anonymous approach”. Despite this deliberate lack of attribution, every BAST project has a distinct character. The GENS group, founded in 2009 and currently with offices in Nancy and Paris, defines itself as seeking to exploit what it calls the “economy of the project”. These two offices represent the new generation, and their production reflects how collective work is valued. Through a selection built works, the magazine explores an architecture less marked by the use of any formal language, but rather the methodological approach to solving each project.
