Samson Lacoste Tell a friend

Atelier YokYok, France

Samson Lacoste is an architect and an artist. He lives in Paris and works since 2008 with Luc Pinsard, together they founded Atelier YokYok in 2015, a research studio thought as a tool to create artistic installations. Ephemeral and architectural, their works play with their environment and tell stories through a graphic and plastic language shared by both of them.

‚Ä®Samson Lacoste also practices architecture as a perspectivist. He works regularly with the image studio Luxigon creating competition images for various French architecture studios. 

He is passionate about drawing and geometry and he uses 3D tools combined with hand sketching to explore space and perspective.

After their degree in architecture with Luc Pinsard, they are laureate of the Jardins de Chaumont-sur-Loire in 2009 and the FAV of Montpellier in 2011. 

In 2015, their laureate project “The Shooting Vaults” for Cahors Juin Jardins is particularly noticed in architecture & design’s field. Since then, YokYok, with now four minds, works in various contexts as National Singapore Museum, a gallery in Beyrouth, or organizations around urban and artistic development in France, China or USA. They awarded globally multiple times for their projects.
