ENIM Ecole Nationale d\'Ingénieurs

2005 / 2012

National Engineering School

Education & Research

Metz National Engineering School (ENIM) for 1,240 students: classrooms, administrative premises, three amphitheatres of 90 seats, an amphitheatre of 250
seats, a media library, a video conference room, workshops, a scientific, technical and industrial research cluster.

This project offers a strong, young and contemporary image to the ENIM in relation with the excellence of the training that is provided as well as the dynamic character of the school and its spirit. This image is mostly given by the " velum ", i.e. the general envelope of the building. It is as much facade as roofing and it unites under its bending curve the academic and technological teaching clusters. This velum, this sail pulled up in the landscape, is designed like the logotype of the ENIM: a sign within the technological cluster and a sign within the city.
