The product of an unusual and diverse educational background, .Christophe Delmar followed a a traditional training as a gardener at the Ecole Dubreuil where the theme of the project was taught by Lucienne Collin. Alter two years of a degree course in architecture, he entered the National School of Landscape Architecture in Versailles, already the scene of debates and questioning on the surveying territories and the city-countryside relationship with Alexandre Chemetoff, Michel Corajoud and Gilles Clément. It was with that latter that he took part in the studies for the Citroën Park in Paris, then the cemetery of Père Lachaise with Patrick Berger.

Graduating in 1989 with a research thesis on the palimpsest idea (The genesis of a structure, its evolution, its durability", Christophe got together with Anne-Sylvie to create the Atelier de Paysages Bruel-Delmar. The practice rapidly launched into projects for territory and public spaces, for which they sensed the urgency as an obvious priority, via the surveying of places, of sites, of our heritage.

His work during twenty years with the town of St Jacques was to become an important subject for the study and field execution for him, forming a kind of laboratory of urban ecology.

Since 1989, he taught continually, at the National School of Landscape Architecture in Versailles, at the School of Architecture for cities and territory in Marne la Vallée in the project field and in the framework of DSA (Diploma of deeper and specialized knowledge in architecture and urban planning). He plays a role in numerous degrees, juries, conferences and publications.
