Hiren Patel is an architect based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India specialising in ecological and sustainable architecture. He has agreed to take over the artistic direction of the first Shamengo Villa in Bordeaux. Hiren has a real fondness for this citizen project, due to its simplicity and elegance. For three days, he pounded the pavements of Bordeaux on foot and by bicycle—despite the cold! He met with elected officials, representatives of the City’s services and the pioneers of the lumber industry in the Aquitaine region. He’s part of a team of French and international talent coming together to build the new world!
