Perf Metal RAG


Check out the R̩sidence Andr̩ de Gouv̩ia [RAG] at the Cit̩ Universitaire Internationale de Paris [CUIP], designed by AAVP Architects. Essentially, the project is an addition to an existing residence hall Рclad with this golden perforated metal screen system.

The original building, designed by Jose Sommer-Ribeiro, was expanded to include more rooms – and basically got an face-lift on the interior, giving the rooms a much more contemporary feel.


What I like in particular – more than just the screen itself – is that the design of the addition allows for you to inhabit/move within the space between the screen and the actual wall of the building [see below].
