The Centre Des Livres d’Artistes is located in a small town which houses a specialized collection of published works on the subject of nature and childhood. The Centre also has a contemporary video and experimental music collection which is exhibited both at the Centre and at other locations. The project 'Greenhouse' has several parts: the entrance desk, the mobile library units and the video room, all designed for the display of a diverse collection of books, manuscripts and videos, etc. Terrariums were incorporated into the design to be a metaphoric reference to the thematic of the Center, and be a logo for the project.
