Architect, city planner and designer, Jean-Michel Wilmotte was born in France. He founded his own architecture firm in Paris in 1975. He takes an interest in everything in equal measure: from the most improbable to the most obvious, from the top of the range to the most economical, from the smallest thing to the most imposing. Jean-Michel Wilmotte likes to go where no one expects him. This range of scale and activity allows him an excellent overview; he has the leisure of thinking afresh and “reinventing” each time, always upholding the same demanding level of quality and attention to detail.
