Our scientific experts
This operational structure is supported by scientific experts from the laboratories of the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées ParisTech.
- Jean-François CARON EN
Research Director of the Ministry of the Environment, head of the Materials and Structures Architectured team of the Navier Laboratory, Professor at Ecole des Ponts.
Jean-François is the Scientific Director of the project. Chief Engineer of materials and composite materials, he is the expert of these aspects in the project and also the institutional and contractual interfaces between Ecole des Ponts, the partners and Canopee Structures SAS.
- Frédéric TAYEB EN
Dr. Engineer of Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon and Ecole des Ponts, he is the academic head of MEM department (Mechanical and Materials Engineering).
Frédéric, specialized in design of light structures, brings his expertise on the aspects of additive manufacturing (connections – fastening systems) for the development of new processes and the implementation of departments projects for school students.
Also passionate about vegetation, Frederic participates with us in the experiments and plants choices according to various constraints.
- Baptiste LEFEVRE EN
Expert Calculation, Engineer of Ecole Polytechnique, and also Bridges, Waters and Forests Engineer.
Baptiste will participate in the development of the proposed solutions, relying on the expertise he developed during his experiences at Ecole des Ponts.
- Romain MESNIL EN
Calculation Expert and Facade, Doctor Engineer of Ecole des Ponts, holder of a Master of Engineering from MIT. Project Manager Co-Innovation Lab of Ecole des Ponts.
Romain is a specialist in architectural geometry and his role is to participate in the development of innovative structural design solutions.
- Olivier BAVEREL EN
Olivier is Professor at the Ecole des Ponts and at the National School of Architecture of Grenoble.
Through his academic, architectural and constructive culture, he drives innovative reflections and developments in terms of structural typology on complex geometries construction methods and assemblies.
Also expert in digital construction, he reflects upon aspects related to the automation and robotization of construction.
- Adélaïde FERAILLE EN
Expert Ecodesign and life-cycles, Dr., Government Public Works Engineer (ITPE). Adelaïde brings her skills in Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) to this project, and thus, the possibility to explore the environmental potential into different design alternative, variations and types of construction, and plantations.
She applies her expertise to the service of the interface between the different stakeholders involved in the LCA.
- Julien CRAVERO EN
Engineer of Centrale Nantes, Julien is a PhD student at Ecole des Ponts, in HM&Co lab (Hydrology Meteorology and Complexity) and Navier lab (Materials and Architectural Structures).
He is writting his PhD on the “Optimal implementation of green gridshells for mitigating urban heat island effects”. His main research interests concern thermal flow modelling at various scales, architectural geometry, the assessment of ecosystemic benefits of urban vegetation and the life-cycle analysis of vegetated structures.
To do so, his work must couple instrumentation of a prototype implemented at the ENPC and high resolution modeling of thermal flows. This will help to question the optimal arrangement of these structures to answer questions of cooling in a complex urban environment.
- Pierre-Antoine VERSINI EN
Expert in Meteorology and Urban Hydrology Complexity, Dr., Engineer of Centrale Nantes, Pierre-Antoine brings us his knowledge regarding hydrologic impact and quantitative urban hydrology : modelling runoff model using linear and non linear model, incorporation of blue and green infrastructures and green roof, impact studies, ecodesign, modeling the transfert of pollutants from road traffic.
