LIN Cité du Design Saint-Étienne

Saint-Étienne - UNESCO City of Design

The ‘Platine’ by LIN architects Finn Geipel and Giulia Andi is part of the ‘Cité du Design’ and, in addition to an auditorium, gallery, media library, greenhouse and training rooms, is also a walk-in, climatic experimental field. Ten different types of panels are used on the building’s envelope of equilateral triangles, which significantly regulate the indoor climate.
