The town of Limoges is known for its porcelain, which became famous during the 19th century. Over half of the production of porcelain made in France comes from Limoges. There are still several porcelain factories in and around Limoges.Therefore, it comes as no surprise to find the European Ceramics Centre in the town of Limoges. The building houses several research programs and educational programs from (among others) the French National Engineering College of Industrial Ceramics and the University of Limoges. Steep inclining fa├žades define the inverted trapezium form of this ceramic research centre in France. The project's design was influenced by the scientific research that would be carried out within. Deep-black high-quality panels are used to create a building that looks silent and in deep thought. Distinctive straight lines and angles are used to represent both the measurements made and accuracy required from the researchers.
