Le Temps Machine in Joue-Les-tours, France by Moussafir Architects

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Article source: Moussafir Architects

A Southwest suburb of the city of Tours, Joué-le-Tours was upgraded to the status of a town in the 1950s. It was at this point that, together with the town hall and social housing, Joué-le-Tours got its MJC (the Youth and Culture Centre). An initiative of the country’s first Minister of Cultural Affairs, Gaullist and intellectual André Malraux, the MJCs were an important institution in France.
