Firstly, by the docks which are regularly punctuated by carefully organised architectural or plant “pauses” which emphatically arrange the Garonne river-front: the Quinconces, the Bourse, the bridgehead, etc. The Centre, with the large spaces it creates and which surround it, constitute a new “pause”, a new major anchor point at the edge of the river. As a result, it acquires a status at site level and becomes a real marker point at the entrance to the city from the boulevard, the railway, the future promenade of the Eiffel walkway; Secondly, at city level: the Regional Centre of Culture and the Creative Economy plays a major role in the general urban composition, somewhat like a logo; like the pure major monuments for which the city is known, the RCCC structure responds and, in turn, reflects its own era. This pure geometry symbolises this unique location which is a place for shared culture. Thirdly, with the district: the building’s compact size offers a forecourt, a reference space for the specialised public and residents. Upstream from the Eiffel walkway, the district is linked to the river via large spaces which, on either side of the Centre, travel towards the bank.
