The project is a photography school in the port area of Nantes. It was designed by student Pauline Personeni at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Strasbourg.
The project consists of a translucent box cut through by a large atrium connecting all the levels. The ground floor is totally open and runs indifferently indoor and outdoor giving the box a floating impression since it overlaps an adjacent excavated space. Exhibition space and lecture hall are underground, widely open to the excavated exterior public space while administration space and lecture rooms are in the upper levels.
