Center for Circus Arts, Châlons-en-Champagne

NP2F  Caractère spécial 

On land cultivated by a rural cooperative, a new building hosts an internationally known circus training school in volumes that use the language of agricultural sheds.

An enclosure made of corrugated fiber cement panels results in a unitary image that hides the differences between preexisting elements and additions, which overall make a more urban and distinctive presence.

The hangars’ flexible layout and material quality are reproduced in the framework of unobstructed spaces for physical activities, complemented by classrooms and social areas on different floors.
