The creation of Prouvé Convention Centre was first and foremost the successful conversion of an emblematic building in the station district, that of the former postal sorting centre, designed in the 1970s by architects Jacques André and Claude Prouvé.



The building, which at the time boasted 11,000 square metres of available space, was, according to specialists, an icon of 1970s industrial architecture. This is why Marc Barani and Christophe Presle, associate architects, wanted to design their project with a sense of respect towards the building’s architectural highlights.
