maison des arts et des étudiants

The “Maison des Arts et des Étudiants” (House of Arts and Students) is a hotbed for student life and is used predominantly as a public building which acts as a showcase for culture at the University. A true urban landmark, its sculptured shape and slightly unique setting make it accessible to the non-academic world, thus helping to spread knowledge. The large multi-purpose hall that hosts not only shows, but also concerts, exhibitions and other socio-cultural events, is the main feature of this building: an almost cubic volume with a side length of 25 metres, which is emphasised by the rectangular geometry of the ”Maison du Nombre” (House of Numbers) and by the horizontal construction volume of the “Maison du Savoir” (House of Knowledge).
