The construction of the new multimedia library of Montauban is spearheading an urban renewal project in the eastern quarters of the city. The field of influence of the future multimedia library is bordered and cut by roads whose geometries are marked by history. The interpretation of the program resulted in dividing it into three equivalent parts: a citizens' forum, a large reading space that invites discovery and meetings, and rooms for reading and working. By superimposing these three programmatic entities, placing the last level obliquely so that it shares its diagonal with the two lower floors, and linking them by triangulation, CFA generated an interior spatiality that responds to the architectural brief and a volume that addresses all the geometries of the site. The building is draped with a coat of terra cotta, a tribute to the brick architecture characteristic of Montauban. The treatment of the outdoor spaces with tinted concrete evokes the cobbled sidewalks of the old town.
