RESEARCH ANDSUSTAINABLE CONCEPTION
Founded in 2001 by Nicolas Michelin, then associated with Michel Delplace and Cyril Trétout, ANMA is an architecture, urban planning and landscape agency based in Paris, Bordeaux, Brussels and Beijing. Now managed by 7 associates, the agency develops a sensitive approach to the city and territories, in search of harmony between the sites, man and his environment.
At all procedural steps performed and according to each types, ANMA contemplates a respectful approach regarding urban and natural territories. Through research, experimentation and knowledge sharing, it develops ultra-contextual projects which derive from the genius of the place, bespoke buildings resulting from a constant desire to use green energies.
It questions the ways of doing things among those involved in construction and takes and defends bold positions on the making of the city, particularly by encouraging negotiated town planning and collective intelligence.
KEY PRIORITY : ACCOMMODATING
ECOLOGY AND ECONOMICS
The agency’s priority today is to reconcile ecological and economic issues for any type of operation. The agency’s expertise is regularly required on a number of housing projects, it also develops the design of commercial projects or large-scale facilities such as two of the Grand Paris Express stations or the Nice Marché d’Intérêt National.
With its team of town planners and in close collaboration with its founder Nicolas Michelin, ANMA controls strategic urban operations from Ile-de-France to Marseille, Villeurbanne, Montpellier, Lille or Clermont-Ferrand.
In its Paris offices in the 10th arrondissement and in Bordeaux, it constantly changes its structure to adapt it to changes in society, in particular by promoting the collaborative principles it has defended and tested over the projects of the last twenty years.
A COMMITED FOUNDER
First associated with Finn Geipel in the 1990s under the name LabFac, Nicolas Michelin has been, for 20 years, at the origin of the research and production of the ANMA agency.
Recognized for its respectful approach of the environment and rewarded for its achievements, he positions the agency as an innovative research tool, attentive to the sites and their inhabitants. He is committed to collaborative urban planning he has been developing in major projects in France.
In a process of long-term knowledge transfer, he’s gradually backed by a team of partners to whom he transmits his convictions and who, in line with the agency’s values, maintain and strengthen positions vis-à-vis the environment and the making of the city.
HORIZONTAL & LEARNING THE STRENGTH OF THE COLLECTIVE
