Land’Act won the competition for the future Palais des Congrès de Nîmes on behalf of the city, along with Agence Chabanne & Partenaires, 3XN Architects, Kéo Ingénierie, Atelier Roland Jeol (lighting), Marshall Day Acoutics and Scenarchie.
The future Palais des Congrès is located in the heart of downtown Nîmes, in a dense urban context that is rich in heritage. The project is in line with the Musée de la Romanité, the Nîmes arena and the archaeological garden. Thus, connections are created between the different public spaces in order to constitute a harmonious whole. A forecourt, using the vocabulary of the architectural façade, marks the main entrance and invites visitors to explore the Palais des Congrès. The landscaped areas highlight the heritage on the side of the archaeological garden and a landscaped valley structures the planted walkway for a planted atmosphere that gradually becomes urbanized with lounges, a planted step oriented towards the archaeological garden.
