The Muoto studio is an architecture agency based in Paris since 2003. Its activities cover the fields of project management, management of research and teaching.

Muoto projects are often characterised by minimal structures that allow a multitude of different forms to be combined of activities and to respond to economic and aesthetic issues. The agency pleads for an architecture primitive, both frugal and generous, which can evolve over time.

The agency has recently delivered a housing complex in Paris, a crèche and an accommodation centre, an equipment university on the Paris-Saclay campus, a business incubator in Dammartin and two school groups in Clichy-la-Garenne and Boulogne-Billancourt. It has been awarded various prizes, including the Bauwelt 2017, Holcim Awards 2014 and the 2017 and the Silver Square 2016.
