Maison du Citoyen China, - 2013

Concept

Emblematically located at the entrance of the city, La Maison du Citoyen, in the shape of a spiral, symbolises the city’s movement and dynamism.

The blueprint of the building, based on a square with a large courtyard illuminated from above, is an interpretation of the traditional habitat. In this habitat, a courtyard, accompanied by a skylight, symbolises the heart of the home. It is a “salon” for citizens, a meeting place, a space of exchange, rest, exhibition and visiting.
