The Architecture and Champagne Summer University Program offers a few dozen students from different horizons to reflect on the vine box (loges de vigne) of tomorrow, in connection with the local winemakers.
In 2017, eight “loges de vignes” were designed and built in Châlons-en-Champagne and 6 new lodges were built in 2018. They now punctuate the Champagne landscape and form a real stroll along the vineyards.
