Marc Leschelier French, b. 1984


Marc Leschelier (1984) is working between the field of sculpture and architecture, he is building pavilions and architectural artefacts in experimental conditions. Marc lives, works and teaches architecture in Paris. His work explores directness in the construction process and the idea of non-functional architecture. Starting from a refutation of construction as a rational enterprise, the work reduces its domain to an elementary, instinctive and irrational approach. 

Marc was invited this year to show his work at the Venice Architecture Biennale in the Italian Virtual Pavilion and at Milan's design fair in Alcova. Recently, he has inaugurated a permanent construction in the french sculpture park Piacé le Radieux. Last year, Marc participated in the Tallinn Art Biennale, opened his first solo show in Vienna at Architektur Im Magazin and exhibited at the Villa Noailles. One of his most important constructions is located in the park of Château du Feÿ (2019) in Burgundy, France. 

During the year 2017-2018, Marc was a fellow at the Villa Medici in Rome. He received in 2011 the research grant from the Le Corbusier Foundation. He currently works on a book about Raimund Abraham supported by the Graham Foundation to be published by NERO editions. He is currently working on an architectural vocabulary elaborated from 3D scans of construction relics, disseminated through NFT technology and to be built virtually in metaverses or printed.
