Architecture

One can find the Lodève Museum nested in a town house from the 17th and 18th centuries, an elegant building and birth home to Cardinal André Hercule de Fleury, the tutor and prime minister of Louis XV.

Renovated between 2015 and 2018, it is now endowed with a contemporary wing created by the firm PROJECTILES.

The stone-lined courtyard of the town house gives way to the room of passing, a vast skylight connecting raw concrete to stone. It is in this same room that one can find the monumental Faune by Paul Dardé.

Both contemporary and classified forms of architecture mirror each other throughout the visit.
