With "Alésia museum and archaeological park" the French study Bernard Tschumi Architects occupying a historically significant place in Bordeaux, it pays homage to one of the most important battles in France dating back 2000 years between Julius Caesar and the Gauls. The project represents the participants in the war without obstructing the ancient path that still hosts a medieval city today. Construction will take place in two phases. The first, an interpretation center for observation, has been completed and opened to the public and represents the temporary encampment of Caesar's army.
The Dutch study MVRDV built the new 'teletech call center' by reusing the structure of the first mustard laboratory in Dijon, France. Thanks to the strategy of preserving the existing building, it was possible to limit the budget to just € 4 million, using a greater part of the funds for the interior design.
