Lille Museum of Modern Art

Recently extended, the Museum of Modern Art in Lille, France, reopened its doors in September 2010 with the help of this welcoming pavilion. The pavilion site lies next to the subtle original brick buildings of the museum, within its extensive sculpture gardens, and overlooks the surrounding country park.

The client’s challenging brief had a very practical, an experiential, as well as a symbolic dimension.

Lille Metropole museum

Location: east side of Lille on city perimeter

The Lille Métropole museum of modern art opened a quarter of a century ago, has built by the architect Roland Simounet in verdant surroundings.

Manuelle Gautrand, who won the competition launched in 2002 to renovate and extend the museum, has created a building which wraps around the existing arrangement in a fan-splay of long, fluid and organic volumes.

After over four years’ renovation and extension work, the museum has opened its doors to the public on September 25th. The museum is dedicated to contemporary and modern art, and houses also one of the most beautiful collection of outsider art in Europe in the new extension, especially built on that occasion.

Is it possible to reaffirm the city in an architectural project?

This question, shared by our entire team, was the departure point for our search for a sensitive but daring response.

The plot’s strategic position, at a major crossroads in an urban district, directed us towards a “multiform” architecture whose geometry could provide a specific response to problems linked to the project’s scale, geography and demands.
