Xavier Wrona

Xavier Wrona (1976, France) is the founder of the architecture office Est-ce ainsi, a structure working to refocus architectural practice on its political consequences and its possible participation in the reform of “vivre ensemble.” Est-ce ainsi articulates a wide array of subjects, from the critical discourse of the figure of the architect throughout history

to the production of architectures with a particular attention to the means of production of the built environment.
Xavier Wrona is a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris La Villette and of the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA. He is now associate professor at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Saint-Etienne, France and a PhD candidate at the Ecole Normale Supérieure. Est-ce ainsi was awarded the Young Architects and Landscape Architects prize by the french Ministry of Culture in 2010.
