about Centre de Création Contemporaine Olivier Debré
In 2016 the studio baldinger•vu-huu won the competition to create the visual identity and typography of the Centre de création contemporaine Olivier Debré, located in Tours, in the framework of the French 1% artistic contribution.
In the heart of the Loire Valley castles region, the CCCOD opened its doors in 2017 and brought to the city of Tours a prestigious creative centre of international standing. The 4,500 m2 building was designed by the architectural firm Aires Mateus. It houses four temporary exhibition spaces, an auditorium, a café-restaurant and a bookshop.
As a place for sharing, living and meeting, the art centre offers the public the possibility of an authentic experience of art: it is in this spirit that the programme occasionally brings together the work of Olivier Debré, a significant figure in 20th-century painting, with the most recent works.
