Perspective view from main plaza, heart of the rennovated CEVA proposal

Renovation of a historical block in Beaucaire, Medieval city in the Camargue region, to host the CEVA, structure which develops cultural and educational exchanges in the international and interdisciplinary areas of heritage, architecture, art and landscape. Objective of the excersise was to study, analyze, and finally propose a solution of rehabilitation of the area preserving and respecting the three cores, soul of the building unit. A connecting point between the town and CEVA, a landmark for Beaucaire and architecture, an incubator of ideas.
