Foster + Partners to design Musée de la Romanitée Narbonne
May 21, 2012

Foster + Partners Narbonne Musee RomaniteeFollowing an international competition, Foster + Partners, working with museum designer Adrien Gardere, is designing a new museum for Roman artefacts in the city of Narbonne, southern France.
The building incorporates galleries for permanent and temporary exhibitions, a multimedia education centre and library, as well as administration, restoration and storage facilities. These spaces are arranged over a single storey and are unified beneath a concrete roof canopy, which provides thermal mass and contributes to a comprehensive environmental strategy. The canopy is elevated above a clerestory, punctuated with light wells and extends to shade a wide public plaza around the museum.
The Musée de la Romanitée will be a new landmark at the entrance to the city, on a site adjacent to the Canal du Midi – the landscaping reinforces the connection with the water to create a tranquil natural setting and, inspired by formal French gardens and the Roman courtyard, features an amphitheatre for open-air displays and events.
