Marc Frochaux was trained as an art historian at the university of Lausanne and as an architect at the Federal School of Technology of Lausanne and Zurich (EPFL, ETH). He worked as a scientific assistant for the Archives de la Construction Moderne – EPFL, publishes in 2009 an architecture guide of Lausanne and writes occasionally reviews for the architectural Magazine Werk, Bauen und Wohnen, apart from his independent activity as an architect. He takes part in the new doctoral program of the gta Institute since October 2013, where he started research on the Institute of the Environment, Paris 1968 – 1978. The thesis postulates that beyond the pedagogical reform that followed the collapse of the “Beaux-Arts system” this institute started in France an unprecedented epistemological reflection, which eventually helped to define a new scientific field: architecture.
