New Website Launched

parametric design, architecture and art

hdaparis

After a long waiting, last Friday we have finally uploaded our new website at

hdaparis.com

We intend the new homepage as a portal showing randomly some images of our projects, our research and studies and from where you can be linked to our ISSUU portfolio and to our blog.
We also understand the page as something that could change very often, mainly by updating images of the slideshow (you can see them below) or the “interesting links” at the bottom of the page that are acting like a kind of news feature.

So, as it’s not something immutable, we would really like to have your comments and remarks.
We’ll soon add some relevant feature, for example we will integrate the work we are doing on Flickr and I think that we’ll add a more navigable portfolio without using Flash and with each project having its own link.
In our thoughts, we were very inspired by the great article “Why Can’t the World’s Best Architects Build Better Web Sites?” criticizing the current trend of building non-usable architecture website.

Are architect designing their website as they design buildings?
And if the answer was “yes, they are”…would it be a good thing?

Please give us your feedback! Many thanks.
