The programme comprises spaces intended for creative practices (music, drama, writing, costume design, sets), venues (a modular space with the capacity to accommodate up to 1,500 people as well as a space accommodating up to 200 people), communal and accommodation facilities.
Our programming consultants contributed to elaborating the main components of the "Cité des Arts" project.
Drawing on the existing elements, we aimed to meet the needs of a conurbation of 200,000 inhabitants for quality cultural amenities while preserving diversity through performing arts (music, dance and theatre), visual arts (painting and sculpture) as well as digital arts and literature.
The project is split in two phases and will be carried out on a 30,000 sqm plot of land.
The first phase concerns the former Butor forge and foundry (14,000sqm) on the west part of the site while the second phase will take place on the east part of the site.
