Ecomusee, Alsace, France

When a far-sighted client asked DJA to create a flexible Masterplan for a project to rescue threatened historic buildings in France, it was an interesting challenge.  Now, years later and with 70 buildings relocated and rebuilt, the working museum has achieved international recognition (it has been European Museum of the Year).  The Ecomusee adjoins an old potash mine which was also a research project for DJA on the potential after uses of the half a dozen potash sites no longer in operation in the Alsace.
