DESCRIZIONE
 
.
Norman Foster, Foster + Partners, MuRéNA - Musée de la Romanitée, Narbonne, FranceThe museum – the outcome of an international design competition won by Foster + Partners in 2012 – will house an array of Roman artefacts excavated in this region of southern France.

Norman Foster, Foster + Partners, MuRéNA - Musée de la Romanitée, Narbonne, FranceOnce a major Roman port, the city of Narbonne has been continuously inhabited ever since, and has accrued an impressive legacy of buildings, ancient relics and archaeological sites. Foster + Partners’ design, devised in collaboration with museum specialist Studio Adrien Gardère, is based around the prime exhibit of the museum – a collection of more than 1,000 ancient stone relief funerary blocks, recovered from the city’s medieval walls in the 19th century. Their display informs the architecture of the building, forming a natural barrier at the heart of the simple, rectilinear structure and separating the public galleries from restoration spaces, which are also to be accessible to organised groups. Visitors will be able to glimpse the work of the archaeologists and researchers through its mosaic of stone and light, and the flexible display framework allows the reliefs to be easily reconfigured and used as an active tool for learning.

A single storey structure with administrative offices at mezzanine level, the museum has a precast concrete roof canopy, which provides thermal mass and contributes to a comprehensive environmental strategy. The canopy is elevated above a clerestory and punctuated with light wells, extending out to shade a wide public plaza around the museum. The building incorporates galleries for permanent and temporary exhibitions, a multimedia education centre and library, as well as restoration and storage facilities.

MuRéNA will be a new landmark at the entrance to the city, on a site adjacent to the Canal du Midi. The landscaping will reinforce the connection with the water to create a tranquil, natural setting. The ensemble is inspired by formal French gardens and the Roman courtyard and will feature an amphitheatre for open-air displays and events.
Spencer de Grey, Co-Head of Design, Foster + Partners:
Norman Foster, Foster + Partners, MuRéNA - Musée de la Romanitée, Narbonne, France“We have been inspired by the setting, by Narbonne’s climate and by the city’s fascinating collection of Roman artefacts. The gardens will strengthen the connection with the canal and surroundings, and at their heart will be a simple, energy efficient museum building. All of the internal and even some external walls can be rearranged – its flexibility mirrors the live excavation site, a shelter to accommodate the exploration within.”
