Bertrand Schippan as panel member for the DNA Paris Design Awards & Conference


 Join Bertrand Schippan as he speaks on a panel for the DNA Paris Design Awards & Conference on Thursday, the 20th of October 2022.Bertrand and his panellist will discuss how they utilise design in harmony for a more social and greener future. As a partner on MVRDVS renovation of Lyon Part Dieu, a shopping centre which houses a mixture of commercial, leisure and newly created public space, Bertrand is able to add valuable insight on this topic. The design of Lyon Part Dieu acts as the perfect example of harmony between a more social and green future as it restructures each side of the mall, opening up the building to the street and adding a vast public roof garden.

DNA Paris Design Awards is an accolade honouring the work of international architects and designers, who improve our daily lives through practical, beautiful and innovative design. DNA Paris Summer Design Conference is a series of fun and insightful events curated to spark discourse on the future of design.

Partner, Architect and Urbanist, Bertrand Schippan, developed his career at several international offices including FGP Atelier, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, and West 8 prior to joining MVRDV in 2006. This diverse range of experience in different settings, and his equally international educational background, which includes Ecole Nationale Supérieur d’Architecture in Lille, the Escuela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura of Coruna, and the Technische Universiteit of Eindhoven, has molded a versatile approach to the design task. At MVRDV, Schippan has played an integral role in projects of various scales – from single buildings to masterplans – by continually testing and challenging existing theories and methodologies to refine his own professional practice, and inspiring others under his leadership.

Among many MVRDV projects, Schippan’s decisive contribution to the Project of Grand Paris is clear evidence of this. Having strategically supported MVRDV’s endeavours in France, he has been fundamental to the establishment of the office’s Paris headquarters, and currently overseas La Part Dieu in Lyon, Gaité Montparnasse in Paris, and several building sites in Bordeaux.
