UFR de Droit et Sciences Economique The extension of the Faculty of Law and Economics in the center of the city of Limoges is a sort of showcase, whose transparent walls describe the metamorphosis of the building. The space of the complex, defined by a glass surface, consents to perceive – even in relief – the two internal volumes characterized by their “air bubble” form. Covered in zinc panels, these volumes exhibit themselves and project into the urban surroundings visibly stabilizing with itself a network of relations that signal, in a game of transparency, contaminations and differences, the “continuous” relationship between building and city. Served by a course of which stairs and elevators close ranks, rooms for lectures and those destined for didactics, collected in the space in ovoid sections, are therefore submitted to a “re-sewing by sight” intervention that, through the fifth glass door, recalls the parts of the project with the existing corner building – once the Hotel de La Bastìde.
