Thierry is the founder of Atelier Thierry Roche et Associés, an architecture firm in Lyon. They are convinced that intelligents and tangible solutions are the key in facing changing social and environmental factors. They rely on teamwork (codesigning), shared culture, training, partnership with all Building stakeholders. This approach gives the architect a central role as a leader, listening to its partners (design offices), industrials, companies… and the contracting firms involved. The Thierry Roche & Associés Atelier was awarded the « Fair & Sustainable City Lyon » label in October 2012, awarded by the City of Lyon.
