Odile Decq MACRO
Odile Decq has devised an original edition that take back the founders of architectural elements of the MACRO in Roma
It’s at the east of Rome, close to Pria door, in an industrial and residential area of the 19th, that nestles the extension of the MACRO, designed by the French architect Odile Decq, born in 1955.
A polymorphic architecture where glass, aluminum, concrete and metal mesh intersect, exarcerbating or moderating sharp edges and oblique levels game, high voltage and high flying.
In this space, the red, the black, the white and the gray vibrate with light. The red blood “like life” auditorium as an asteroid between earth and sky, between glass and basalt in the middle of the foyer, impulse joyfulness. The foyer, from where wandering staircases, ramps and bridges increase and demultiply interior point of views. The terrace, inserted in the midst of surrounding buildings gives the feeling of being in an intimate setting: a landscape chere everything is composed of folds, slopes, inclined glass roof, with refreshing water of a fountain, where tree soar toward the sky…

Odile Decq is an architect born in 1955 in Laval, in the Mayenne department of France. Odile Decq graduated in architecture in Paris in 1978 and received a diploma in Urbanism and Planning in 1979 from the Institute of Political Studies in Paris. In 1980, Odile Decq opened her own agency and subsequently went into partnership with Benoît Cornette in 1985 (ODBC agency). Together they achieved two buildings for the “Banque Populaire de l’Ouest” in Rennes, a project which brought them international recognition. A Golden Lion Award was attributed to the ODBC agency during the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 1996. After an international competition in 2001, Odile Decq’s project was selected for the expansion of Rome’s museum of contemporary art (MACRO). In 2004, another one of her projects was selected for the construction of the Regional Contemporary Art Fund (FRAC) in Rennes whose construction is almost completed today (opening scheduled in Spring 2012). Odile Decq has been a professor since 1992 at the “Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture” in Paris where she was elected head of the Department of Architecture in 2007. http://www.odbc-paris.com/web/
