Mountains were the inspiration for the 300-meter glass promenade connecting three prestigious universities representing art, technology, and management in Nancy, France. Agence Nicolas Michelin & Associates (ANMA) replicated the sawtooth profile of the surrounding terrain in an overhead glazing fabricated by Ariño Duglass made up of laminated glass with Vanceva PVB interlayers in Coral Rose, Sapphire Blue, Aquamarine, Smoke Grey, and Ruby Red polygons.

WOCA juror Paul Eis considered Galerie Artem the clear winner, stating, “It is the best example how colorful laminated glass can be beyond its status as a technical object or as decoration.”

“The hall is not just a link between all the buildings of the campus but also interacts with them as one ensemble,” Eis continued. “The interplay comes in a formal way between the cubatures but also with the color design. The play of light and color on the fine white structure, the other buildings, and the floor/street is remarkable. Furthermore, Galerie Artem shows a high quality in city planning aspects in context of the play with the small-scale historic cityscape in the surrounding. All in all, a striking project not just with colorful laminated glass but because of colorful laminated glass!”

The glass gallery is climatized for year-round enjoyment and plays both a structural and unifying role by connecting the École Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Nancy (ENSA), the École des Mines pour la technologie (ENSMN), the ICN Business School, and their shared resources.
