Born in Laval in 1955, Odile Decq nurtured a strong passion for architecture from early childhood. The 1980s brought national and international success to Odile Decq with the opening of her own agency in 1980. In 1985, she formed her valuable partnership with Benoit Cornette; this union was to lead to ODBC, one of the most important trademarks appreciated all over the world. Numerous commissions flooded the new studio: from private dwellings to prestigious boutiques, and even the completion of the Banque Populaire de l'Ouest et d'Armorique in Rennes. Today, Odile Decq is also busy as a tutor, teaching at the School of Architecture of Grenoble and the Special School of Architecture.
