This evolution, inherited the glorious past of the paper mills angoumoisines, gives today a new breath to the agglomeration. One of the more good example of this evolution is the Center Main road of the Cartoon and Image (CNBDI): The site occupied as of the 6th century by the abbey St Cybard then by the Champigneulles breweries at the beginning of 20th was reorganized in 1987 by the architect Roland Castro. It conceived an architecture "between memory and modernity" which respects the past of the site while creating a frontage of glass which is spread as a book (news functions of the place). On the square, flagstones were created by the artists on the model of the prints of Hollywood. This museum of the data base currently accomodates an exposure on the Imaginary Museums.
