Data centres, the architect and the city


In this video, Carole Netzer, the director of the Hyphen office in Paris, and Hichem Djebali, the data centre manager, discuss their roles in developing the data centre market and team in Paris. Carole and Hichem emphasise the increasing impact of data centres on city architecture and the need for thoughtful building design, considering environmental factors.

They highlight the crucial role of architects in obtaining permits and their significance in achieving sustainability, integrating data centres into the urban landscape, and fostering acceptance from the local community. To achieve these goals, collaboration between the MEP engineers and architects is key.
