Presentation of the BRY1 building extension project:
The Institut National de l'Audiovisuel is a public industrial and commercial establishment under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and Communication. This institute, created in 1975, is in charge of the safeguarding, the development and the transmission of the audiovisual and digital heritage.
The real estate project is based on two complementary operations: a new construction with a "technical and digital" vocation as an extension of the building known as "BRY1″, as well as a partial functional reorganization inside this same building in which INA moved when it was created.
Architect: Dominique Lyon
-Project owner: INA, Institut national de l'audiovisuel.
-Provisional budget for the works: 9.8 M€ excluding VAT
-Project duration: 23 months
-Surface area ofthe extension: 4590 m² of floor space (which will house the technical department of the collections department; the IT department's datacenter; and a whole series of offices)
A word from the architect:
"The architecture of the extension is partly defined by the role that theINAplays - as an institution - in the city of Bry-sur-Marne, within a neighborhood that is called to evolve. The particular provisions adopted by the project - the lifting of the building and the freeing up of the ground - make it possible to achieve a landscape continuity between the Coudrais park and the planted strip along Avenue Georges Méliès, which can be extended as far as the park of the international high school in Noisy le Grand.
Nothing blocks the view, the perspectives match and lead to the panorama. The extension project does not contradict the existing, it does not bring a new form to it onthe grounds that it would be more contemporary: it seems to be the destiny of the building, and belongs as much to the past as the present."
