Do you know about mud brick? Healthy and environmentally friendly material, it has low thermal resistance and strong inertia. He will participate in the regulation of the new building of the Departmental Archives of Lot in Cahors (rue des Cadourques). 50,000 mud bricks are used to build the conservation stores. To find out everything about this extension site, open days will take place on Saturday 25 (full) and Sunday 26 May 2024 (guided tours, free, in groups and upon registration at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.).

To enable the extension of the Lot Departmental Archives, major work began in March 2023 in the Maison des Œuvres in Cahors. The 11 km of current shelving in the Lot Departmental Archives had reached saturation. The former Capuchin convent in Cahors, which preserves the memory of the Lot through millions of documents dating back to the Middle Ages, was struggling to accommodate new funds. 9.2 million euros were thus invested to almost double the capacities of the Departmental Archives.

The extension project aims to increase the volume of archives conservation with 9 km of additional shelving.

The 2,000 m² will also house premises for processing archives and a reception area for cultural and educational activities.
