Petitdidier Cédric and Vincent Prioux, born in 1978, met on the benches of the school of architecture. Graduates in 2002, they engaged in various practices like the Atelier Seraji for Cédric Petitdidier and Lipsky + Rollet for Vincent Prioux.
They created the PETITDIDIERPRIOUX practice by partnering in 2004, when they won the "Archi'nova - how will you live tomorrow?" competition, launched at the initiative of Alliade group. They built 55 homes on one of the blocks of the La Duchère urban development zone (Lyon), offering a new type of stacked individual units: the "maisons-plateaux."
In 2007, they were invited by the Ministry of Education to participate in the competition for the redevelopment and extension of the palace Mounira, IFAO headquarters in Cairo (Egypt). This was a defining experience in their desire to design public facilities and revealed their passion for the work on the existing and the memory of places.
The studio, now stronger of a dozen references and made up of around twenty employees, has a dozen projects in progress, which will be completed in the next 2 years. It works for public and private order, on rehabilitation projects as well as new buildings, in the areas of housing, offices, public facilities, throughout France and abroad.
PETITDIDIERPRIOUX’s practice has been recognized many times: nomination to the Price of the First Work and winners of the Grand Prix of architecture Rhône Alpes 2010 (30 units of Villefranche-sur-Saône), winners of the 2010 award "40 under 40 "of the European Centre of Architecture and winners of the" International Property Awards "2013," Best Architecture Multiple Residence Europe " (109 housing ZAC Boucicaut in Paris).
