The central media library at Béziers, named after the French writer and Culture Minister André Malraux, is the work of Jean-Michel Wilmotte’s Paris studio. This large cultural container is part of the Paul Valéry University of Montpellier. The media library was opened in September 2008 and is built on a site formerly occupied by an old army barracks. It is housed in an imposing building formed by three glass and pale stone monoliths; the central section is on 4 floors, with 3-storey wings gathered around a central garden.
