Gwenaëlle Verrier

Professional architect in her thirties, she is founder and director of P O S I T I V A R C H I. Her international experience and strong environmental conviction give her a fine understanding of your expectation and a surprising ability to unfold your vision. From 2005 to 2010, she worked in leading architecture companies, from Strasbourg, France to Johannesburg, South Africa and developed a wide range of project as designer or project architect. From her education in architecture at the ENSAS, achieved with Cum Laude DPLG (architect diploma delivered by the French government), she brings in a solid background in urban design and green buiding. Her urban project of positive energy facilities for Johannesburg, MoByJo, has been included in the City spatial development framework (SDF) and serves as an example for iconic green building.
