The French Association Centre de Découverte de la Nature & Écomusée Aqua Terra aims to educate the public about the wonders of nature. For this Association a concept design for a new ‘Discovery Centre’ and ecomuseum was prepared.
The architectural characteristics for this ecomuseum were derived from the traditional tobacco drying barns which can be found throughout the region.
A Palmhouse is situated in the heart of the centre and is towering above the rest of the building, which houses a museum and a Desert Garden.
The design has been submitted for approval on funding from the Lot Department authority.
