NOC42

An extension project for the 42 campus in Paris, NOC42 (Not Only a Campus) is being constructed in front of the main building. Winner of Réinventer Paris (Reinvent Paris) in 2016, its goal is to sustain a natural synergy between the success of 42’s pedagogic project and the improvement of the neighborhood’s environment, designing collective spaces to support the life of the community. In addition to providing student housing, NOC42 will offer shared gardens, a cooperative grocery store, a community café and an auditorium.

Oléron

Forty2

Located on the Oleron Island in France, 150 meters from the beach, the Saumonards Fort from the 19th century will become a one of a kind extension of the Paris’ campus. Interior redesign will integrate a complete computer cluster – among other things – and will turn this ancient summer camp into a very special place for 42 students that will welcome bootcamps, workshops and delocalized events. Once operational, it will also welcome social programs.

What was the use of the first “computer”?

The ancestor of the computer is probably not the first machine you’d think of… In 1801, combining various techniques, Joseph-Marie Jacquard filed a patent application for the first programmable mechanical machine in history: the Jacquard loom. Thanks to punch cards guiding the hooks, the machine helped weave fabric patterns. The success was global and some Jacquard looms are still in use more than 200 years after its invention.
