Timelapse of the renovation of La Mécanique Générale

2014 - 2016

Built at the same time as the Parc des Ateliers, the building, formerly called an assembly workshop, was transformed in the 1940s and became La Mécanique Générale.

Cut open following a fire in 1986, La Mécanique Générale was the second building renovated by Selldorf Architects. The structure required an almost total redesign to be transformed into an exhibition space.

Inaugurated in 2016, the building now consists of a modular space hosting exhibitions and performances, as well as a workspace.

  • Total area: 4518sq
  • Exhibition space area: 2928sq
