Alice Grégoire, born in 1984 in Lille, is an architect (DE) and a graduate of ENSA Versailles. She has been teaching architecture at ENSA Versailles since 2014. Since 2010, she has been working for OMA/Rem Koolhaas.

Clément Périssé, born in 1984 in Rennes, is also an architect (DE-HMONP). He studied architecture at ENSA Versailles and in Rome. From 2012 to 2018, he worked for OMA/Rem Koolhaas.

In 2015, Alice Grégoire and Clément Périssé co-founded Cookies along with Federico Martelli and Antonio Barone. Cookies is an architecture and design agency specialized in cultural projects, based in Rotterdam. Cookies has been involved in various projects, including the spatial design of the play “Studio Créole” (by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Adam Thirlwell) for the Manchester International Festival and contributed to “Countryside,” Rem Koolhaas’s research exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, particularly with the chapter “Buying is Saving,” which deals with the preservation of natural spaces in Chile. Currently, Cookies is working on a retractable showcase system for the Humboldt Forum in Berlin and a furniture line constructed from architectural fragments.

Their project at Villa Médicis is titled “Nature, a manual for architects – in search of architectural material in the heart of the wilderness” and aims to challenge the traditional opposition between nature and architecture by reestablishing the act of building in continuity with the natural environment.
