Stéphane Couturier explores, in highly aesthetic and, at the same time, socially ambitious photos and videos, the ‘Climat de France’ housing project – today called Oued Koriche – in Algiers. Built-in the International Style in the 1950s and based on a design by French architect Fernand Pouillon, the ambitious project is now the centre of the Bab-El-Oued district. Today the housing project is a city within a city, forgotten by politicians and avoided by the police. While his previous work had been focused mainly on the formal aspects of modern architecture, his newest pieces also explore the people, who bring life to these architectures, designed at the drawing board, and who thereby adapt these ideal structures to their own ideas and needs. The buildings’ strict forms and regular structures encounter the accidental occurrences of everyday life.
