The « grenier du siècle »
In a double-walled part of the building sits the Grenier du siècle, a project to preserve traces of Nantes’ memory, dreamt up by the architect Patrick Bouchain and the artist Patrick Raynaud : 12 000 objects were deposited by average citizens, then sealed in tin boxes, never to see the light of day from 31 December 1999 to January 1st 2100, when they will finally be opened. Visible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from rue de la Biscuiterie.
