Learning Center, Villeneuve d'Ascq

An events forum, a cafeteria and an experiment space have been added to the the existing library building with its distinctive, net like and dissolved concrete facade. A designed landscaped plateau surrounds the circular structure and is set apart from the structure by a concentric light band. The entrance areas and additional spaces occupy the space below the new undulating roof. A large hall spanning all levels is the link to the existing building. The existing library is transformed to a modern “learning centre”.
