Today's archidose #526

Here are some shots of the Pierre Vives building under construction in Montpellier, France by Zaha Hadid Architects. For some reason the project -- it serves the Hérault Department and includes archives, library, and sports department -- is nowhere to be found on her firm's new web page. Pierre Vives was featured on this blog previously, in a 2006 post on the state of starchitecture. Photographs are by Manuel.A.69.
