"Working with Arnaud on the House of European History was a real  discovery in realising that a designer could actually understand a narrative  and  interpret  it  in a poetic, beautiful, joyful and  informative  way."  Taja Vovk van Gaal, Academic Project Leader, House of European History

Arnaud worked as a creative consultant and designer with the Academic Project Team for the future House of European History in Brussels.

More recently, in April 2013, he compiled the Interpretative Plan.
