The castle of La Rochefoucauld was built through 7 centuries of architecture, from year 1000 until the middle of the 18th century.

Each construction is related to a political act, imposing the size of the family and celebrating a victory.

The fall of a part of the donjon during the 20th century gives the opportunity to continue the architectural work during the 21st century. The actual owners of the castle have asked the well-known architect M. PEI to design a donjon with recent materials (see model). He came to La Rochefoucauld, very enthousiastic, and presented a first model in 1999. A second model is finally accepted by the Superior Commission of Historical Monuments.

This donjon will symbolize perenniality. It will be attending a virtual library as demanded by M. PEI in order to do a pendant to the actual entrance where the library La Rochefoucauld Liancourt is. The 18th century wing will become an architecture school.

Today the project for the erection of the 21st century donjon, which cost amount to 5 million euros, is subject to patronage.
