School of Medicine

Montpellier (France) - 2016

The Medical School in Montpellier is one of the oldest still-active medical universities in the world. The construction of the new building in this new setting, between modern architecture and the latest technologies echoes the prestigious past of this institution.

François Fontes has designed an emblematic building which deserves to be a symbol. The new Faculty and its main façade - 12 meters high and over 65 metres long - ensure the monumentality of the institution. The main facade is a wonder of glass engineering. It consists of multilaminated glass fins of 12 metres high - all in one piece - and laminated glass panels supported by patchfittings  attached to the vertical glass fins with metallic inserts. The smaller side façades - between 9 and 12 meters long - with a similar technology to the secondary entrances. Finally, on the courtyard and on the roof, there are two façades and three rooflights with bolted glass system which embellish the whole building.
