Repellino, Maria Paola. 2019. “On the Intensity of Surfaces: Lycée Hôtelier de Lille by Caruso St John Architects.” World Architecture/Shijie Jianzhu 344 (2): 10-13.
“The Lycée Hôtelier de Lille built on the site of the former Fives-Cail-Babcock (FCB) steelworks shows how contemporary architecture can help redefine former industrial sites, modernise their functions, and more in general transform whole city districts. […] The work by Caruso St John draws on architectural heritage and the history of architecture for very specific reasons, but primarily because they wish to respect the site where the project is to be built”.
