Atelier Confino created a vibrant dialogue between the building itself (former Lafarge cement factory) and its tragic history.
The Site-Memorial was conceived, mainly for young people, not only as a museum of history and a place of preserved memory, but also as a space of heritage and artistic culture and as a "museum of ideas", an innovative laboratory in its content as in its educational devices.

Thus, for the first time in the world, the Camp des Milles Memorial Site provides, on a place of remembrance, multidisciplinary reference points and keys to understanding that can help us to be vigilant and to react in time in the face of identity-based tensions and extremism.
