National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec
Currently the museum is located in three structures varied history, purpose and architectural expression and too small for this type of museum exhibition wants to host, it needs to expand.
BIG partnered with Fugère Architectes to design a proposal for expanding the museum, which centered around the formation of large facade, conceived as two large windows to reveal the ever changing exhibits at the museum.
Conversely, large amounts of natural daylight into the interior of the filter and visitors to the museum to get the grand sweeping view from the Parc des Champs-de-bataille and pages.
A new design competition for the expansion of Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec including the design of many proposals from some of our favorite architects, including the Danish company, BIG.
Although they did not win the expansion (OMA does not), we actually prefer their design because the inclusion of green roofs sloping that people can actually walk on top, big natural window!
Two main facade facing rising form the pages that are protected with neighboring churches and monasteries.
The lines connect the roof to the floor and extend the garden area to the building itself, and guests can mill around and walked to the green roof. On top of all this, old growth trees in the surrounding area.
