Research halls, Arts et Métiers

The introduction of a system within the historic halls able to constantly adapt to evolving research. Based on a backbone of circulation walkways, a system of functional laboratory boxes occupy the central volumes of the halls while modular partitions and an irrigation of networks is used to reorganise the premises to be found in the side wings. The shortest hall is extended by a similar volume constructed from the contemporary use of robot-assembled brick, a technology that fully expresses today’s engineering.
