Architectural vist to the new Louvre-Lens Museum to mark the end of the year

To mark the end of the year 2013, Reid Brewin Architectes visited the Louvre-Lens museum in Pas-de- Calais, about 200 kms north of Paris. We set off early on the train from Gare du Nord and after spending a few hours visiting the building, the park and some of the exhibits, we finished the day with our annual office Christmas lunch at a local restaurant nearby.

The museum, opened a year ago, was designed by the architects SANAA-IMREY CULBERT after a global architectural design competition. The building is comprised of a series of wings spread out from a central entirely glazed entrance hall. All on one level, it is an easily accessible structure that integrates into the site without imposing its presence. The polished aluminium facades reflect the surrounding park, keeping continuity between the museum and the surrounding landscape. Catherine Mosbach, a french landscape architect and museographer Studio Adrien Gardère collaborated on the project with the architectural design team. The building was awarded the Sliver T-square Prize for Architecture in 2013.
