Former National Library of France Reopens After a Decade
Designboom has a detailed post about the renovation, including some stunning photos.
in the early 2000s, it was decided that the aging building had become unsuitable for the demands of the 21st century, and a major overhaul was planned. with work starting in 2011, bruno gaudin’s architecture firm was responsible for the project’s general management, while the restoration of the listed ‘salle labrouste’ was entrusted to jean-françois lagneau. to keep the library partially open, the renovation has been divided into two phases, with the second stage set to complete in 2020.
