Architecture: EP7 Restaurant by Stephane Malka: “..french architect and former graffiti artist stephane malka has designed a guinguette typology for paris that synthesizes the mythical dimensions of nature with the ceaseless growth of the urban environment. his EP7 restaurant uses an accretion of raw wood, primed for the organic growth of plant life, to created a lively skin for an urban recreation space. the architect began his career as artistic agent of the urban landscape, using the massive planes of the city to understand the communicative power of the built form. the architecture, in this case, references land art and ties in the intertwined masses of metropolitan paris with the teeming life of the forest. free walls and vegetation arise from the delicately sectioned modules of square timber while expanses of glazing challenge the pixelated envelope..” Interesting facade..
