Text description provided by the architects. The Villers abbey site is crossed and split by the N275 national road so it loses logic and unity. Architecture, through a common intervention in landscape and scenography fields, tries to reunite the full cistercian composition plan. The project leads to a truly sequence from the parking to the ruins and prepares the visitors. The new path goes by the mill (reception hall, scenographic spaces, models room), reaches the hill across the new footbridge, continues through the garden, crosses the second bridge over the national road and finally goes down into the ruins. The project highlights a common thread by means of sober  materials (corten, wood, concrete) set up in various ways.
