Wilmotte & Associes Architectes is an international, multicultural and multilingual practice founded in 1975 by the architect, urban planner and designer Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Based in France, the United Kingdom, Italy and South Korea, Wilmotte & Associes Architectes currently employs 250 architects, urban planners, museum design specialists, and interior designers of 21 nationalities, all driven by the same passion for exploration, knowledge-sharing, and creativity. Spun out of the architecture firm, the design studio Wilmotte & Industries SAS - including six designers - explores 'environmental design', and has developed a strong reputation in the worlds of industrial and object design. For more than 40 years, from Dallas to Paris, from Rio de Janeiro to Seoul, taking in London, Dakar, Venice, and Moscow, they have travelled around the world discovering new lands of opportunity. Jean-Michel Wilmotte and his collaborators are leading more than 100 projects in 27 different countries, from the biggest to the smallest, from the most spectacular to the most ordinary, with the same fervour from the initial sketch to completion.
