Fifteen years after the two parties had to interrupt their project to create a museum on Seguin Island and fifty-five years after Tadao Ando's Grand Tour took him to Europe for the first time, the opening eagerly awaited by the Pinault Collection in Paris also marks the acclaimed return of a Parisian monument to the public.
Tadao Ando's daring intervention embraces the past occupations of a building which, in its strata, bears the marks of history and its different uses. Both pragmatic and poetic, the concrete cylinder nestled under the dome helps meet the challenges of a contemporary art museum. It demonstrates the radical potential of a building whose past and present architectural metamorphoses have made a theater of progress and experimentation.
Like other Japanese architects active in Paris, Tadao Ando carried out his project at the Bourse de Commerce in close collaboration with his French counterparts. This book tells the story of the committed work of architects, engineers and designers, through multiple interviews, in particular with Lucie Niney and Thibault Marca (NeM Architects), Pierre-Antoine Gatier. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, and Tadao Ando himself.
