The agency has made a name for itself thanks to large publicly-funded cultural projects, such as Gare Saint-Sauveur and Le Tripostal in Lille, the Mame printing works in Tours, and the urban redevelopment of the Quai Branly, a listed UNESCO World Heritage site, along with the banks of the river Seine in Paris. It is also renowned for designing office blocks that bear its hallmark in terms of performance and design, such as the Workstation tower block in the Défense district, and for completely overhauling older buildings, such as the office buildings on Rue du Renard and Boulevard Raspail in Paris.
Top names from the fashion world, such as Christophe Lemaire, Isabel Marant, Jérôme Dreyfuss, Bali Barret, Lacoste or the LMVH group, have also called on the Franklin Azzi agency to design their boutiques in the US, Japan, Korea, China and France.
Last but not least, as a firm believer in the power of sharing knowledge and expertise to overcome the challenges of our time, since 2017, Franklin Azzi has been leading the Tour de Montparnasse project as part of Nouvelle AOM (a team of agencies he brought together to take part in the international architectural competition Demain Montparnasse), working alongside Chartier Dalix Architectes and Hardel Le Bihan Architectes. Illustrative of his ability to create and innovate through upcycling, this project, scheduled to be completed by 2024, represents everything Franklin Azzi feels a vertical city should be – energy efficient, accessible and resilient.
