Along the Alley of Culture, different public spaces follow one another, punctuating a walkway going from the cathedral to the Rochegude big public park. This path begins with the creation of a square at the level of the Sibille Boulevard, then arrives on the theatre place, and continues on the cinemas place in front of the Athanor, to finally open onto the public garden.
That’s the idea of an “urban walkway” animated by the succession, the juxtaposition and the interaction of several cultural buildings.
