About Us

Initially located in the Manufacture des Tabacs, the community of researchers and staff of Toulouse School of Economics and IAST moved into a brand new building in November 2019.
Dedicated to this community, this new building is also dedicated to research with the specificity, provided by IAST, of developing the economy for the common good and multidisciplinarity.
The University Toulouse Capitole was the prime contractor for the  construction of this building---the first time a university has led the project management of a construction site within the framework of a State-Regional Planning Contract (CEPR).
The Irish firm "Grafton Architects" designed a building open to the city that blends perfectly into the historic heritage environment of Toulouse.
“What we try to do in our work is to be aware of the various levels of citizenship and try to find an architecture that deals with overlap, that heightens your relationship to one another. Toulouse School of Economics features brick buttresses, ramps and courtyards, which are metaphors for the city filled with bridges, walls, promenades and stone towers.” Yvonne Farrell
Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, the architects of the new building, won the 2020 Pritzker Architecture Prize which is often described as architecture's Nobel Prize: https://www.pritzkerprize.com. The building has also generated several other prizes, including the prestigious Equerre d’Argent in 2020.
