Larcade, together with the Institute’s director, Jérôme Delormas, and Guadalupe Echevarría, director of the Fine Arts School of Bordeaux, is making an arts space from a former electrical-resistor factory. The company that once occupied the building has given its name, consonni, to the new arts institution. It’s a lovely building, with a great ground floor lined with columns and generous grid of windows on the floors above.
