Born in France, Odile Decq (1955) studied architecture, urban design and spatial planning in Paris. Together with Benoit Cornette, in 1985 she set up the architectural office that bears their names.
Odile Decq has designed numerous buildings in France, including a scheme for social housing in Paris, university buildings in Nantes and a temporary skating rink in Bordeaux. She has also contributed to French entries to the international biennials in Beijing and Venice. In recent years, Decq has focussed on the museum and art world.
