Palais des Congrès de Nîmes
Nîmes, 2019

It is first its tight, urban context that makes the Palais des Congrès an unusual place for such a large facility.

How to enhance such an overcrowded context through an architecture that must be both contemporary and respectful of the history of the City of Nîmes?

One of the challenges is that this site is crossed in its center by a historic and busy street. We took advantage of this constraint by making the street a lively common denominator of the project, with a spectacular elevated glass walkway crossing the street overhead. The Palais is a building spanning both sides of the street, with red accents – a symbol of Nîmes.
