Galerie Philippe Gravier
Galerie Philippe Gravier has developed two concepts: Maisons d’Edition, projects that fall between art and architecture, and Elements of Architecture, projects that fall between architecture and sculpture.
Maisons d’Edition are small nomad houses that must be removable and sustainable, imagined and designed by the best architects, Pritzker Prize winners, Grand Prix National d’Architecture and International Artists.
Whether “bijou” or “folly”, each of these small houses need to correspond to the architect or artist’s personal signature based on innovation. Designed as hotel suites and easily assembled, their surface area is a maximum 400 square feet and produced in limited editions. They are edited and numbered in eight editions + four artist’s proofs.
Elements of Architecture are produced more as sculptures than design; it is a question of architectural style and of each architect’s personal signature and excellence. They are produced in a limited edition of five.
