The project has a major multifunctionnal issue, with a complex programmatical superposition. In a dense urban context, an underground sport field, a refectory on the ground floor, a library for the first floor and classrooms and laboratories for the upper floors are planned.

The architecture is a part of a double tradition, both formal, in an neighborhood with a strong identity which has to to be respected, and human with the legacy of the Pierre Fourier – Alix le Clerc foundation.

We claim qualities of simplicity, restraint and durability, while expressing the human values of the institution. Masonry is reinterpreted in a contemporary way, set both in the windows design and in the general volume.
