CENTRE NATIONAL DE LA DANSE
Created in 1998, the CND possesses, aside of its cultural vocation, all the trump cards of a unique site consecrated to the furthering of dance. Brainwave of Jacques Kalisz, the former administration of the city of Pantin was renovated by Antoinette Robain and Claire Guieysse, a work that won them the Equerre d’argent Prize in 2004. In this vast quadrangle of 7 000 sqm, the architect duo respected the simple volumes of the site and transformed the raw concrete into a space of muted colours, wavering between grey-pink and matt red. Hervé Audibert orchestrated the lighting and the furniture elements were put in the capable hands of Michelangelo Pistoletto and Hélène Diebold. On stage !
