Confluences Museum

Confluences Museum – Lyon, France, 2007

Architect: Coop Himmelb(1)au

The Confluences Museum is a building emblematic of the evolution of this type of architecture, The approach replaces the idea of a temple of art, intended for a social and academic elite, with a place that encourages public access to knowledge about the times we live in – The building tries to directly and actively stimulate its own use as both a museum and an urban meeting place. It was conceived as a museum to which people will come to spend their free time and be motivated to gain information.
