With a new envelope traitment, very interesting by his functional and aesthetic side, the old & re-made building appears now as a signal marking the urban landscape, like a singular margiela's object, a sculptural architecture that users can easily invest. Open to the area, this new building with opaque volumes affirms the cultural and festive dimension of this new equipment for the city of Joue les Tours.
