Culture and heritage

The Cité du Vin, Bordeaux, France

A place to celebrate wine

With the Cité du Vin de Bordeaux, the world-famous wine region now has a high-profile place dedicated to the exploration of the culture going back thousands of years. Built to HQE® (high environmental quality) standards by VINCI Construction France subsidiaries GTM Bâtiment Aquitaine and Arbonis, the building’s unusual geometry symbolises the circular movement of wine in a glass during a traditional tasting. 

A torus – a round, circular cross-section moulding – carries the visitor around a 55-metre tower. These concrete, wood (frame), glass and aluminium (cladding) curves required the use of 3D BIM from the competitive dialogue phase onwards.
