Founded in Le Mans, France, on the 2nd of January 2016, Rock’n Wood is an organization created by three young architects.
Wanting to share our experiences and our knowledge in the arts of construction work, we started this adventure with the ambition to help, in our own capacity, disaster-stricken and disadvantaged countries.
Initially, Rock’n Wood consisted of only the three of us, but when the first year projects came rolling in with the construction of two schools, and with three more projects soon to follow, our team quickly expanded.

 

Gauthier Schmutz
I’m an engineer with a degree at the University of Bois de Nantes. I’ve always wanted to share my knowledge with those in need. I believe it is a gift to have access to a school education and humanitarian work has allowed me to further my learning and understanding of what it is to be an architect.
In September 2017, I enrolled for a master’s degree at the Center of High Studies of Construction Building based in Paris. While residing in France, I balance my activities between my courses and the time and support I invest in the association.
Antoine Ansquer
I graduated from the Architecture School of Nancy in 2015. I’ve built an interest, over the last couple of years, for emergency architecture. Thanks to Rock’n Wood, I’ve had the opportunity, as a project manager, to conduct projects hands-on in Nepal.
It is a fulfilling work where I never stop learning from local actors, while managing the worksite so as to guarantee an architectural project that is consistent with the philosophy of Rock’n Wood.
Michal Luczak
I graduated from the Architecture School of Marseille in 2015. I’ve always had a particular interest in sustainable and bioclimatic architecture. With Rock’n Wood, I feel like I can bring my part in a global effort to rebuild disadvantaged countries while conveying the importance of a responsible architecture.
When the association was created, I left on a mission during which I participated in the construction of a school located in the province of Lamjung, in Nepal. Today, I work in an architecture firm in Paris while assuming part of the administrative load of the association and participating in some of the events we organize.
