Text description provided by the architects. This new hub provides a space for all the town’s cultural events. Stripped of any pretentiousness, the building defines itself as a metal-clad cultural hall. With its hangar-like appearance, the architecture withdraws, handing the space over to the cultural events taking place.

In this way, the building’s internal organisation meets the expectations of residents, performers and the town itself through its facilities and structure. To be able to stage a wide range of events, this cultural multiplex is designed to be modular. Its versatility allows the combination of various art forms, such as singing, theatre, dance and even circus.
