EPA Bordeaux-Euratlantique sets the goal to build the new global reference in tall wooden construction; the ZAC Saint-Jean Belcier with two wooden towers, 50 metres tall. The first in the world! The team from Studio Bellecour and Art&Build, supported by Kaufman&Broad, was selected for lot 4.9. The design of the tower, christened SILVA, sets a benchmark as it will be built from 80% wood and equipped with a primary structure of giant timber columns.
