Chicago’s architecture for an art center in Ivry

La Manufacture des Oeillets

This glass, steel and red brick building was built in 1913 on the American model of the Daylight Factory. Severe and bold, with these four levels with large windows, this industrial building reflects new modernists ambitions: a more international construction, clear and modern forms evocative of the Chicago School and the Bauhaus.


One of the first contemporary art center created in Val-de-Marne, le Credac, was moved in 2011 to this place. This is a good opportunity to meet the artists who are living in residence, see their works and discuss with them. The brunch and tea are usually offered for this occasion! credac3credac 2
