d go collectively to their classrooms. Because of these conditions, generous, bright access zones for communication and accommodation are very important. With the College in Lamballe, it was possible to strictly implement this highly standardized space program of French schools without restricting the generosity of the space.
Opened in 2018, the school in Lamballe, Brittany, is the last of now six projects by Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten in France. Since 2013, the Collège Jean Monnet in Broons (2013-2015), the Sports Center in Longvic (2013-2015), Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Art (ENSA) in Nancy (2013-2016), the Strasbourg Convention Centre (2013-2016) and another sports center in the urban expansion area Bon Lait in Lyon (2014-2016) have been realized. After winning a competition in 2017, the firm is currently constructing the mixed eco-district “Cartoucherie Wood’art” in Toulouse.

Curriculum studio / partecipanteThe office, founded in 1994 by Helmut Dietrich and Much Untertrifaller, is one of the iconic agencies of the renowned School of Vorarlberg. Managed by Helmut Dietrich, Much Untertrifaller, Dominik Philipp and Patrick Stremler, it employs an international team of 90 architects working in Austria (Bregenz and Vienna), Switzerland (St. Gallen), France (Paris) and Germany (Munich). We often develop our international projects with the support of local agencies and regional partners. In the past few years, we have realized numerous projects in Austria, France, Germany and Switzerland.
We create our architecture from its respective context – restrained in style with spatial sophistication and demonstrating a finely nuanced materiality. The entire spectrum ranging from large-scale buildings and urban structures through alterations of existing buildings to apartment buildings and single-family homes defies specialization, constantly challenges and inspires creativity and an inquiring mind.
