The programme of this competition, won in 2008 by Hamonic + Masson & Associés architects, was to reconstruct the Marne departmental archives annexe, situated in the French city of Reims. The new construction is located opposite the old building with the aim to turn the building in to a modern history research hub and a regional information centre, whilst expanding the linear archival storage space from 7km to 18km. Considering the size and the impact on the site, the architect wanted this project for the Reims archives to be read in several ways, to tell different tales depending on distance or nearness to the building, and to allow the discovery of many different elements and feelings as one walks through. Located on a gentle slope, the building stands in such a way that it doesn't spoil or overload the setting.
