The project stretches alongside the railway line in the small village of Venarey-Les Laumes, in Burgundy. The building, designated a centre for rural excellence, contains a number of different initiatives, including a tourist office, a conference and culture hall, a day nursery, and areas for older people. The task of the architect was to bring all these very different initiatives together in a single dynamic unit. The upper volume seems to float above an almost transparent plinth. Cantilevers accentuate the dissociation of the various folds, each fold producing a face which captures the low-angled light produced by the orientation of the building. The volumes of the project express its strong identity in the landscape; it stands like a marker of ambitious political determination.

Only 300mts away from Bernard Tschumi’s Alésia Museum and Archaeological Park that commemorates the history of the battle between Julius Caesar and the Gauls in 52 B.C. Project link :
