On this project, the agency Tetrarc states: "The meeting of history and living culture This project compiles evocative of a place that the previous story to remind deserted at the time of" re "creation for emerging forms of expression, the culture proceeds by continuity, sedimentation, rediscovered fertile. facts Stories places of industrial halls. history of their construction techniques where science and aesthetic came together to create a new beauty in the course of an engineer iron. History ships that men realized their talent and strength. history also looks as artists carried Monet, painter of all new steel structures, Becher, photographers metal shapes pass into oblivion. history yet the same organization of industrial production in a same roof placed side knows a side chain, an experimental workshop, a workshop grinding, a site in shipping therefore a vivid illustration of the concept of adaptability and flexibility. A simple and scalable structure The approach distinguishes two major functional elements. 1200 dining the singular volume and the specific treatment given the noise level of accessibility requirements attached to them and the phasing of the project; All other elements of the program. They are divided into two separate volumes and take place in a constructive structure chosen for its ability to create vast open plateaus to maximize scalability of the entire factory.

The expected performance exceed more than 20% the requirements of the RT 2005. The envelope system broken skin will prevent the heating of the roof hazards.
