Ecosite in Ramonville-Saint-Agne
A large dimension is, in our view, the best way to contain the proliferation, of a confused appearance, of varied architectural elements. These architectural layers can be made comprehensible to all, thanks to an aesthetic of accumulation, assembling elements from different periods, similar to what can be seen in religious architecture. Moreover, height confers visibility on the building and by extension makes the ambitious aims of this project comprehensible.
The outer ramps of the building carry the visitor along a gentle upward promenade around the building, unveiling the horizon of the landscape progressively. The arrival on the roof forms the climax of the scenic visit and can also be seen as the starting point of the visitors’ understanding. The near and the far are side by side; the present moment and the future are brought face to face.
