Musée des Collectionneurs by Steven Holl

The New York-based architecture firm is designing the museum in the city center of Angers, France. This will be characterized by impressive white concrete towers, transmuting the appearance of the museum in that of a fortress.

The museum’s design is inspired and draws continuity from the historic fortress of Chateau d’Angers, which is located just across the river Maine. The 4,742-square-meter museum will form a new "cultural triangle" between the medieval fortress and the city’s largest theater, Le Quai.

The project renders show glazed sections at the base of the tower volumes as well as the lighting elements that sink into the base of the pools. These will illuminate the exterior of the museum during the night.

Inside the white cement has been left exposed to the walls of the galleries, which will host a permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. The large atrium will be used as an event space and will share a small part of its extension with a rooftop restaurant.
