Lascaux International Centre for Cave Art
by Casson Mann

Casson Mann created an entire visitor experience for a sequence of interpretative galleries and a handheld multimedia guide for a new visitor attraction in France, the Lascaux International Centre for Cave Art by Norwegian architects Snøhetta.

Distinctive, elegant and authoritative, the galleries use interactive technology to interpret the palaeolithic painted cave of Lascaux, the “Sistine Chapel” of rock art. At the heart of the experience is a state-of-the-art facsimile of the cave. Subsequent galleries interpret the cave and enhance visitors’ understanding of its global cultural significance.
