A brick plinth anchors the project within its urban and heritage context, reinterpreting the architectural vocabulary of the Occitania city - Toulouse brick. Overhead on two floors, the museum aligns and extends the Rue d’Alger axis by adopting a slight 7° rotation in relation to its base.

Particular attention was paid to the construction materials of the project. Composed of crushed recycled concrete gabions from onsite demolition, the museum facade was designed in collaboration with the visual artist Erwan Marin in an approach to reuse and recycle existing local resources.

The architectural volumes are linked by a totem of brick and concrete blocks which marks the entrance to the ZAC. Studied and arranged with precision, the terracotta bricks and concrete blocks in different sizes draw an urban picture that combine craft with the poetic dimension of a sensitive artistic and architectural approach.
