The boathouse is the 1st phase of a large cultural complex dedicated to the history of the “Canal de Bourgogne” that also includes a small museum. It has been conceived as a paper tube structure and will shelter an old boat to present it to the public.
The small museum is a place for viewing exhibitions and holding pedagogical activities. Its building is a transparent glass box, open to the surrounding landscape. Its structure relies on light metallic shelf angles used throughout the building, thus providing flexible partitions and display in the exhibition area.
The boathouse and the museum are located near each other in a rural area, on the border of the canal where it forms a pool.
