Founder & Director
Atelier Sylvain Roca · France (Fly in)
Founded in Paris 20 years ago, Atelier Sylvain Roca is a mobile studio based on research, creation and global encounters. Through the growing flexibility of lifestyle and work — prior to the recent upheavals caused by the global crises — the workshop’s practice is driven by a certain curiosity and an appetite for lasting immersion in a geographical and cultural elsewhere. It draws advantage from its ever-increasing ability to explore the opportunities and possibilities created by these discoveries and unexpected encounters.
The workshop's deliberately diverse range of challenges includes scenographic and architectural concepts that are always tailor-made and imbued with poetry. They reflect our curiosity, commitment and desire to dream. They constantly stimulate and nourish our enthusiasm to imagine and materialise. The scenography workshop designs architectural arrangements, for temporary and permanent exhibitions, in France and around the world, notably at the Musée d'Orsay and the Grand Palais in Paris, the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, the British Museum in London, and the Heritage Museum in Hong Kong.
A scenographer and interior designer, Sylvain Roca trained in applied arts in Paris, Montreal and Tokyo. The workshop brings together independent talents from multiple backgrounds, experiences and generations.
