We are honored to assist the Centre Pompidou and the Musée national Picasso-Paris in the creation of a new conservation center in Massy.

La Source Vive

La Source Vive: a new concert hall in Evian.
The result of a collaboration between architects Patrick Bouchain and Philippe Chiambaretta, La Source Vive is the result of an approach that combines sensitivity and science: its conch-shaped volume is the result of the search for exceptional acoustics and the desire to blend into a remarkable and preserved landscape.

Open to its territory, the project driven by Aline Foriel-Destezet is housed by the Évian Resort, in the immediate vicinity of La Grange au Lac. The two facilities complement each other and will be brought together within the same institution. They will offer a varied and continuous programme throughout the year, under the artistic direction of Renaud Capuçon.
