City of the Accordion and Heritages, Tulle
The Cité de l'Accordéon et des Patrimoines is linked to the city of Tulle in all its dimensions: it houses very diverse collections between which the connection is formed by local know-how. It is established in the heritage sector in the old building of the Banque de France and is part of a cultural context strongly marked by the Nuits de Nacre, a major cultural event for the accordion in France. The challenge was therefore to design a project capable of giving coherence to these various, potentially antagonistic dimensions.
Several main directions have been identified:
- an opening onto the city with the creation of a public square capable of hosting external events,
-an architectural unity of the extensions, all made in wood in a resolutely contemporary style, suggesting complementarity and reversibility,
-a linking of collections through the social dimension of know-how, accompanied by continuity and the architectural and scenographic treatment of interior spaces.
