Pascal Häusermann (1936—2011) and Claude Costy (1931—) met in 1958 at l’École d’Architecture de Genève, Switzerland both graduating in 1962. After meeting architects Frank Lloyd Wright and Paolo Soleri when interning in Carmel, U.S.A., Claude Costy first got familiar with guniting method, mostly used to build swimming pools and tunnels. At the same time at the London Polytechnic, Häusermann was investigating on the construction of shell-like structures and rapidly came to the conclusion concrete as a material was offering a rather broad range of technical possibilities.
