After winning an international competition, LIN Architects’ “Centre International du Design” facility for research, communication and education in design is now open.  In addition to renovating several buildings on the historic site of the National Arms Manufacture in St. Etienne, the project also incorporates the integration of a new building, the “platine” which is an interclimatic laboratory, a 31 m high observation tower, gardens and a public esplanade. More about the project after the break.
