In 2013, Elioth delivered the first part of the Artem gallery, in Nancy. A street covered with colored glass, supported by a steel origami.  In designing the metal structure and the details of the shell, Elioth worked in perfecting the thermal passivity of this urban space buffer, a new generation of temperate greenhouse. Create a ‘permanent spring season in Nancy,’ without the use of mechanical equipment. Since this time, Elioth has continued to analyze the results of the Canadian wells it had developed. These air-ground heat exchangers ensure, both freely and ecologically, the climate treatment of the covered street.

ARTEM is the acronym of art, technology and management, three disciplines which will be taught on this new Campus of Nancy. Situated right in the heart of city, it will welcome more than 3500 students with for vocation ”to prepare the artists, the engineers and the managers of tomorrow to work together”…

Elioth intervenes in its three fields of expertise by ensuring the complete engineering of the gallery, the covered main street combining the Artem program. Elioth so ensures the conception and the follow-up of realization of the gallery (structure and envelope) as well as the environmental expertise of the whole campus in the side of the agency Nicolas Michelin and the partners.

The gallery Artem is a big structure of steel folded by a very big delicacy. In the city of Jean Prouvé, Elioth paid particular attention to the execution of details as in the search for a great lightness of the structure. The primary skeleton (of more than 300 meters) was mutualized with the structure of window and facade to underline the architectural party.
