Paul Bouet

    Paul Bouet is assistant professor at the École d’architecture de la ville & des territoires Paris-Est and PhD candidate at the Observatoire de la condition suburbaine (OCS). He holds a master of architecture (2012) and a HMONP (professional qualification of architect, 2013) from the ENSA Paris-Belleville, and a master of history of science and technology (2017) from the EHESS. He joined the Éavt in 2013 after having worked as an architect and a journalist. He teaches the history of architecture and the environment, along with writing, and is associate editor of the journal Marnes, documents d’architecture. He has also been serving as research assistant of professor Jean-Louis Cohen (NYU, Collège de France) since 2015.

    His work focuses on the history of XXth century architecture in its relationships with the environment. He particularly investigates the research on the use of solar energy in postwar France and North Africa and the alternative trajectory they shaped for architecture. In this perspective, he analyzed the history of a solar heating technology, the Trombe wall, for his master thesis supervised by Jean-Baptiste Fressoz. He continues this research for his PhD entitled Domesticating the Sun, 1952-1986: Architecture, Solar Energy and the Environment in Postwar France, supervised by Sébastien Marot, and for which he received a full grant from the French ministry of Culture (2016-2018) and a fellowship from the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) in 2019.

    He has recently published “Le mur Trombe” in Face à la puissance. Une histoire des énergies alternatives à l’âge industriel (François Jarrige and Alexis Vrignon eds., Paris, La Découverte, 2020) and “How Did It Fail? Considering the Decline of Environmental Experiments” in Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference of the European Architectural History Network (Tallinn, Estonian Academy of Arts, 2018). He has also several forthcoming essays including: “Figurer l’énergie et le climat. Les recherches de Georges et Jeanne-Marie Alexandroff” in Représenter (Paris, La Villette), and “The North African Horizon of French Solar Architecture, 1945-1973” in Proceedings of the International Congress Colonial and Postcolonial Landscapes: Architecture, Cities, Infrastructures (Lisbon).
