Architecture, Patrimony

2nd SERCE prize 2017 “Heritage enhancement”


Following the Guide Plan for the “enhancement by light of heritage sites and buildings located on the community territory and presenting a tourist interest” carried out by LEA, the City and the Communauté d’Agglomération de Châlons-en-Champagne entrusted LEA and Skertzo with the project management for the creation of a Tourist Route along the Mau and Nau canals. The route, called “Métamorpheauses” and accessible on foot or by boat, offers a night-time stroll revealing the urban heritage to the visitor, as well as festive light projections giving the city a real night-time tourist identity.
