A museum designed in collaboration with François Seigneur in the idiom of the hip architecture of the locale, essentially distributed via the diagonal formed by a cross-street that joins the intersection of the rue Rambuteau and the rue Beaubourg to the plateau La Reynie and the RER station.


Complex and diversified museum circuits designed as a loop, the dimensions of the circuits being based on the classic width of museum halls, with glazed concretions creating spatial dilatations at each corner.


Concavities, deep and complex voids planted with trees. Around the perimeters, a number of urban squares set within wide spaces carved out between the museum and the existing surrounds.
