Eiffage Immobilier inaugurates the new Parisian campus of NEOMA Business School

Eiffage Immobilier and NEOMA Business School inaugurated the School's new Parisian campus at 6 rue Vandrezanne, 75013 Paris, in the presence of Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, Jérôme Coumet, Mayor of the 13th arrondissement of Paris, Jean-Paul Pageau, President of the Marne en Champagne Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Vincent Laudat, President of the Rouen Metropole Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Delphine Manceau, Managing Director of NEOMA Business School, and Michel-Edouard Leclerc, President of NEOMA Business School.

Overlooking the Italie 2 shopping centre, the building has been transformed from offices into a higher education establishment geared towards innovation and adapted to new educational uses, to house NEOMA Business School's new Paris campus from the start of the 2021 academic year.

This project is the result of a strong collaboration between Eiffage Immobilier and NEOMA Business School and has proved to be a real technical and creative challenge, designed by the agencies Philippe Meurice Architecture, DEGW and A 26 and carried out by the Pradeau Morin Renovation teams, from September 2019 to June 2021. The renovation and development work on this site aimed to take advantage of the building's exceptional assets (large open areas, through-going light, 360° view over the whole of Paris, etc.) to transform them into varied and creative spaces, favouring tomorrow's teaching methods. 

The work took place in a dense urban site in a building with a complex structure due to its semi-pyramidal shape. The building is located above the Italie 2 shopping centre and a public car park, in a complex of five high-rise buildings.

The new campus, which is aiming for HQE Bâtiment Durable Performant certification, now occupies 6,000 sqm on 5 levels. It includes 25 classrooms, creative rooms, coworking spaces, a modular amphitheatre and spaces dedicated to the School's alumni association and incubator.

In keeping with Eiffage Immobilier's cultural commitment, which has been a signatory of the "1 building, 1 artwork" Charter since 2015, Eiffage, NEOMA Business School and the 13th Arrondissement Town Hall have been working together to make art an important vector for the district's influence and to encourage encounters and exchanges.

On this occasion, Aurélie Pétrel's artwork "Triangulation" was unveiled. It is composed of three photographs printed on glass linking three continents, three territories, three displacements that summon many others: America (volcanic area of the Atacama desert), Europe (in Barcelona), Asia (facing the Seto inland sea).

The artist teaches and is in charge of the Photography Pool at the HEAD-Geneva, and at the same time co-directs the Experimental Laboratory of the International College of Photography of Greater Paris. Her work is part of the collection of the Centre National D'art Moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP) and other public collections including the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne.
