2003, Under Construction – end of works planned for 2008 – Competition – Winning Project
This project forms part of the general development of the Charles de Gaulle esplanade that was given to the Nicolas Michelin team in April 2003.
Between the Charles de Gaulle esplanade and Gambetta avenue, le project is structured according to the concept of an immense criss-crossing hall that offers two levels of theatres.
It is considered to be one of the constructed façades of this new esplanade. Its architecture presents a play of large horizontal planes and sloping lines on which sunlight plays by day and coloured lights by night.
These horizontal lines link together like a large urban sequence, the ‘Liberty’, the cinema complex and the ‘Champs Libres’, each building having its own identity.
