FREAKS freearchitects is a Paris-based architecture firm lead by three architects favouring prospection, research and experimentation through projects and building process practices from small scale art installations to large scale architecture competitions. FREAKS freearchitects has been awarded the AJAP price from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication in 2010 and the 40under40 european price in 2016. Although nowadays their built projects are mostly located in France, FREAKS’s partners have lived and experienced a wide range of abroad working contexts such as San Francisco, Tokyo, Beijing, Berlin, Mumbai, Singapore, Istanbul

Those sometimes chaotic urban surroundings drove them to integrate to their practice a rich and confident vocabulary of urban scenarios and architectural aesthetics.
The office is deeply involved in reacting towards the image of architecture/architect and their representations in a cynical and playful way. Less is more, more is more, less is not enough.
