The Montricher project
The Fondation Jan Michalski pour l’écriture et la littérature, in Montricher, will be entirely dedicated to literature. Designed as a small city, its different buildings form an unusual ensemble : residences for writers, library, auditorium, exhibition space, dining room, lounge and the offices of the Foundation, intended for the multiple activities of the Jan Michalski Foundation.
