About the location

Les Glacières de la banlieue
121 avenue Alsace-Lorraine, 33200 Bordeaux
  • Gironde
  • Nouvelle-Aquitaine
At a time when refrigerators did not exist, this industrial hangar built in 1909 was used to store ice cakes, which supplied merchants and private individuals in the city of Bordeaux. In 1950, a wooden frame purchased at Château Fieuzal, Grand Cru des Graves in Léognan, replaced the old metal frame. Jean de Giacinto saved this hangar from destruction and rehabilitated the place in 2002: he kept his function as an exhibition space around a greenhouse inside the warehouse hosting a workspace for two architectural agencies as well as the association Groupe des Cinq.
The Groupe des Cinq is a cultural association that supports contemporary art and works to safeguard the architectural heritage of Aquitaine. He is active in the field of production, exhibition, dissemination, promotion of contemporary art and the promotion of artists.
