Asario Scenes Architectures
In 2010, he created Asario Scenes Architectures, borrowing from the theater the reference tools to create an architecture that dialogue with the public space. In the same year he won the Caracas Symphony Complex Competition. In 2011, he co-founded, in parallel with his activity in France, the Venezuelan company for the studies of the project in Caracas, and worked as the principal partner on the concert halls studies. The project, initiated by El Sistema, the internationally recognized music education program, is part of a hypersensitive social context and is recognized as being of public interest. Two years later, important economic constraints forced Jean-Marc to withdraw, leaving the end of the studies to continue locally, and unfortunately stopping before the start of the construction. Beyond the architectural project, he retained the excellence of the program of social action for music, and decided to join the support committee of El Sistema France.In 2013, the designer Ora-Ito will offer him the opportunity of an exceptional new adventure, entrusting him with the management of his most personal project, of which he is the new owner: the restoration and rehabilitation of the Le Corbusier gymnasium at the Radiant City in Marseille. Ora-Ito has imagined in great detail his "Mamo" Arts Center, and Jean-Marc will have made possible and realized the construction of the equipment located on the rooftop at 56 m high, listed historical monument at the UNESCO World Heritage Site. He is currently working on a new configuration of the equipment. Asario has a mathematical approach to architecture, and translates it into the design of sensitive geometric shapes. He is currently studying projects for individual houses, interior design and scenography. His numerous collaborations made him meet many talents, with complementary skills, and today possible independent partners in the framework of a collective work: engineers, landscapers, BIM architects, site supervisor, graphic designers... Jean-Marc Rio also emphasizes the value to collaborate with other architectural agencies, to act in the complexity of some buildings. He is also a daily consultant within the framework of the design of equipment of cultural interest.
In the garden of an old stone bourgeois house, we could discover a long concrete block , 20m long, 7m wide, 6m high. This old disused printing house has a post and beam structure, on a frame of 1.40 m, and is pierced by 32 identical windows on three sides. While preserving its original industrial identity, the idea of the project was to create a terrace on two levels to descend to the garden, and to offer an enriching view of the landscape of the city center : three sequences framed on the church, the tennis court, and climbing plants on a six meters high concrete wall. The house is simple, composed of a living room of 75 m², where sunlight enters from morning to night.
