Mouton is active in designing structures and supporting structural studies, with a strong emphasis on architectural projects. The philosophy of the engineering office is that structure must be seen as a part of the architecture and – like architecture – has to be designed. Moreover, it is often the case that the structure is inseparable from the architecture and structure plays a prominent role in the perception of the design. The ambition is to develop – for every project again – a strong structural concept and – as doing so – to help shaping the design.
In Prague Guy Mouton, founder of the structural design office Mouton, focused on basis off some projects on the relationship of the structural concept in the architectural whole and how a well-chosen structural concept can strengthen the architectural outcome.
