    With sustainable, low-impact homes and public buildings that put the inhabitant at the heart of design and construction, Jean-Philippe Vassal and Anne Lacaton have built their careers on a resourceful, thoughtful and respectful approach to the built environment. Fresh from winning an award often dubbed the “Nobel of architecture”, the French couple join us in the studio to talk about their zero demolition philosophy and why frugality is a naturally ecological response to the problems we face today.
