Confluences. Birth of a MuseumSold by Musée des Confluences
DescriptionHeir to the Natural History Museum and the Guimet Museum, the Musée des Confluences in Lyon has more than two million objects; the diversity of its collections makes it a real 21st century curiosity cabinet.
Built where the waters of the Rhône and the Saône meet, the Musée des Confluences aims to become a place of exchange and crossroads of knowledge. The exceptional architectural gesture imagined by the Coop Himmelb(I)au agency fully meets this ambition.
From the first sketches of the building to the complex implementation of its construction, Confluences. Genèse d'un musée retraces the stages of construction and reveals a true architectural feat.
