OMA designs engineering school Ecole Centrale in France

OMA has won a competition for the École Centrale Paris and its urban developments in Saclay. The project, led by Clément Blanchet, Director of OMA projects in France, has been selected to develop the engineering school, through a competition process against four international architectural practices.

The building will be based in close range to the existing school, Supélec, main partner to the École Centrale Paris, and in direct correlation with the future train connection linking Saclay to central Paris.

The jury, headed by Hervé Biausser, Chairman of the École Centrale Paris, was composed of 21 people. A press conference, featuring a detailed presentation, will be held in September 2012, providing further information and illustrations about the project.
