Xavier Wrona

Xavier Wrona is the founder of the architecture office Est-ce ainsi, a structure working to refocus the architectural practice on its political consequences and its possible participation in the reform of “vivre ensemble.” Est-ce ainsi articulates a critical reading of the figure of the architect throughout history to the production of inordinately minimum architectures with a particular attention to the means of production of the built environment.

Architect DPLG, Xavier Wrona is a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris La Villette and of the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA.  He is now associate professor at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Saint-Etienne, France and a PhD candidate at the Ecole Normale Supérieure. Est-ce ainsi was awarded the Young Architects and Landscape Architects prize by the french Ministry of Culture in 2010.
