Paul Bouet

    Paul Bouet is lecturer at the École d’architecture de la ville & des territoires Paris-Est and PhD candidate at OCS/AUSser research lab. He holds a master of architecture (2012) and a professional postgraduate degree of architect (2013), both from the ENSA Paris-Belleville, along with a master of history of science and technology (2017) from the EHESS. Prior to joining the Éavt in 2013, he practiced architecture and urban design, while working as a journalist. At the Éavt, he teaches the history of architecture and the environment, the practice of writing, and is managing editor of the journal Marnes, documents d’architecture. He is also research assistant for Professor Jean-Louis Cohen (New York University, Collège de France) since 2015.

    His research focuses on the history of XXth century architecture in its relationship with the environment. He is interested in the adaptation of buildings to climate, the integration of renewable energies, and environmental theories that emerged in architecture. His approach combines the history of architecture, the history of science and technology, and environmental history. His work focuses on France and Europe while examining circulations with Africa at the end of the colonial period and North America. In this perspective, he analysed the path of a solar heating device, the Trombe wall, in his master thesis supervised by Jean-Baptiste Fressoz at the EHESS. He is currently completing his doctoral dissertation entitled Domesticating the Sun, 1945-1986: Architecture, Solar Energy and the Environment in Postwar France, supervised by Sébastien Marot. His work received a full doctoral fellowship from the Ministère de la Culture in France, and a doctoral fellowship for a residency at the Canadian Center for Architecture (CCA) in 2019.

    He has recently published “A Silent Graph: Tracing the Algerian Past of French Solar Experiments” in Architecture Beyond Europe Journal (n° 18, 2021), “Deux maisons solaires sans histoire” in the journal Plan libre (n° 21, mars 2021), “Figurer l’énergie et le climat. Les recherches de Georges et Jeanne-Marie Alexandroff”, in Représenter: Objets, outils, processus (Pierre Chabard and Alessia de Biase eds., Éditions de La Villette, 2020), and “Le mur Trombe”, in Face à la puissance. Une histoire des énergies alternatives à l’âge industriel (François Jarrige and Alexis Vrignon eds., La Découverte, 2020).
