It's Coop Himmelblau, the finished product should look fantastic.

LYON. CONFLUENCE MUSEUM.
opening 2014
__________

full report : http://www.designboom.com/architectu...on-11-26-2013/
__________

integrating the fields of technology, biology and ethics, coop himmelb(l)au‘s ‘musée des confluences‘ is envisioned as a ‘crystal cloud of knowledge’ blurring divisions between subject areas and focusing on the society of the future.

located at the confluence of two rivers in the french city of lyon, the themes of contrast and divergence are characterized in the architecture of the design, fusing together separate entities to form a new dynamic structure.


‘the gravity well’

the building is an entirely public facility, functioning as both a museum and as an urban leisure space and is expected to be completed by 2014.

the design features three primary components, ‘the plinth’, ‘the crystal’ and ‘the cloud’. ‘the plinth’, situated beneath the main entrance of the museum, houses auditoriums, meeting rooms and technical areas.


the project’s interior under construction

above, the fully glazed ‘crystal’ is oriented towards the town, welcoming visitors and serving as a public space.

large panes of glass are mounted within steel frames, drawing in vast quantities of natural light.

contrasting the precise contours of ‘the crystal’, ‘the cloud’ has been constructed to resemble a spaceship stationed above the building.


the junction of the design’s three primary components: ‘the plinth’, ‘the crystal’ and ‘the cloud’

programmed across three levels, three permanent and seven temporary exhibition galleries are connected with a fluid circulation route.

the configuration of the exhibition halls further establish the themes of variance and complexity, with enclosed black boxes alternating with open gallery areas.

externally, ramps and pathways merge the structure with an adjacent park, forming a new public square.


the angular and tapered forms of ‘the cloud’

the museum references both the past and future, stimulating curiosity, and providing lyon with a significant and sustainable cultural center.


‘the cloud’ houses ten exhibition galleries


‘the cloud’ has been constructed to resemble a spaceship stationed above the building


the building is an entirely public facility, functioning as both a museum and as an urban leisure space


'the crystal’ oriented towards the city center

I think this building is great -- looks like a giant alien spaceship has landed. I also love way the French are willing to take risks with their architecture. So many countries would be afraid to tackle something so bold.

The zombie of deconstructivism lurches onward.

I applaud the French for giving so many opportunities to architects to be adventurous but this is just inane. It's the architectural equivalent of a Transformers movie--a violent, overstimulated mess. It's a cold, cold mess of steel and looks like it'll quickly appear out-of-style just as so many unrestrained chateaus of postmodern garbage do now.
