The Paris School of Architecture studios are based
in a city centre campus next to Parc des Buttes-Chaumont in the 19th Arrondissement at 78 rue Compans. PSA is situated within an ecosystem of artists, makers and start-ups powered by Volumes, an innovation laboratory which offers industry-quality workshop facilities, maker-spaces, conference rooms and a rich program of curated transdisciplinary events.
As we are a small and highly selective school, and for the security and privacy of our students, visits to the school are open solely to candidates who hold an offer from the school.
Information about open days will be communicated to candidates via email. For more information, please email
The ethos of the school is to engage directly with Paris as our testbed. As part of this, certain courses, workshops, lectures, screenings, and exhibitions will be held at other locations across the city.
The Paris School offers two forms of facilities to its students, Internal Facilities within the Paris School’s building, and External Facilities, providing access to industry-standard equipment through out network of associated practices.
