Musée des Arts premiers, Quai Branly, Paris

This project proposes a continuity of the buildings on each side of the site, on the quai Branly and on the rue de l’Université. Seen from the Tour Eiffel, the geometry of the building reveals itself completely : the facades and roof curve in order to create three concave spaces : a park on the side of the Seine, the undulating roof, the garden on the south side. This single architectural object, fluid and curved, dominated by wood and glass, looks to encompass the history of humanity.
