David Chipperfield Architects to design new Musee des Beaux-Arts in Reims, France

David Chipperfield Architects has been selected to design a new museum in Reims, France, for a comprehensive collection of paintings, sculptures and objects from the 15th to the 21st century. An experienced museum and art gallery architect, David Chipperfield has completed a string of high profile projects across the world, including the Turner Contemporary in Margate, UK, the Museum Folkwang in Essen, and the Neues Museum in Berlin.

Chipperfield’s latest competition win is the Musee des Beaux-Arts and is destined to sit on a narrow plot of verdant grass on the fortifications between the old and new portions of the town. Also located at the plot is an excavation site where archaeologists have discovered a number of mediaeval artefacts.

Inside the museum, visitors will find a number of exhibition spaces leading through the building with the displays set out in chronological order. Supporting these flexible exhibition spaces is a café and auditorium with art education rooms and a smattering of smaller galleries for the works of different artists and collectors. A sculpture garden is also on the cards, as is a library.

Efforts have been made to draw connections between the visitors to the museum and the exhibited artefacts, with glimpses afforded into the non-public restoration workshops and wooden bridges extending across the atrium over archaeological findings in the foyer. This lobby brings together visitors from each of the three bar-formed volumes into a central space, twelve metres in height which offers a ‘transition space between inside and outside’.

From an external perspective the building sports a monopitched roof and a sheer façade clad with marble panels at the plinth zone and glass ceramic slabs in the upper regions. The architects detail: “A large proportion of the exhibition space is naturally lit. Light-diffusing ceilings in the uppermost floor distribute the daylight evenly through the pitched roofs. The large, translucent façade areas in the first two floors make it possible to control the incidence of side light, the preferred lighting for the exhibits on display, while individual windows draw the visitor’s attention providing views up to the cathedral.”

Actually this is probably not the right thread to post this: as far a I know, Reims is not located overseas.

The new suburb of Dumbéa-sur-Mer under construction to the north-west of Nouméa, New Caledonia. You can essentially see earthworks on these pictures. Dumbéa-sur-Mer, spread over 2.5 km², will have 6,000 dwelings (25,000 inhabitants) when it is completed, a big shopping mall, 5 primary schools and 2 high schools.

Some pictures of the complex of Tour de la Pointe Simon in Fort-de-France, Martinique, taken by the Martinican French forumer Gaeth. 105.5 m (346 ft) for the main tower, and then several mid-rise buildings around it.















+ a video from the 18th floor. The interior of the tower is not finished yet.

The Alsatian architectural firm drlw architectes has won the tender for the extension of the East Terminal of St Denis Airport, in Réunion. St Denis Airport is the main airport of Réunion, and it's one of the busiest airports in Africa. In 2011, 2,085,047 passengers passed through St Denis Airport (up 9.1% compared to 2010). The extension of the East Terminal will handle the giant Airbus A380 starting from 2014.

View of the terminal extension:


An article in French for more details:

Infrastructures : l’extension de l’aéroport de La Réunion confiée à l’agence drlw architectes

Le Moniteur
27 mars 2012

Le cabinet alsacien remporte le concours de maîtrise d’œuvre visant à concevoir la modernisation et l’agrandissement de la plateforme en vue de l’arrivée de l’Airbus A380 à l’horizon 2014.

L’agence drlw architectes (Mulhouse) vient de remporter le concours de maîtrise d’œuvre pour les travaux d’extension de l’aérogare passagers Est de l’aéroport de La Réunion Roland-Garros.

Le projet vise à renforcer les structures de la plateforme, qui accueille 1,8 million de voyageurs par an, afin d’améliorer le confort du public et d’accueillir dans les meilleures conditions l’Airbus A380 à l’horizon 2014.

La proposition des architectes alsaciens Christian Weinmann et Denis Dietschy consiste à réaliser l’extension du hall public à l’est dans la continuité du bâtiment actuel, en respectant le principe structurel des « fougères ».

« Trois fougères supplémentaires porteront la nouvelle toiture qui reprendra la volumétrie de l’existant. Les matériaux du sol et plafond se prolongeront naturellement et sans rupture », indiquent les concepteurs.

Les nouveaux poteaux ont été imaginés tout en blanc, en harmonie avec le plafond, cette unité renforçant encore l’abstraction de la « forêt de fougères ». Afin de donner une nouvelle image à l’ensemble du bâtiment et de rendre le hall plus lumineux, les fougères existantes seront, elles-aussi, peintes en blanc.

Some news about the bridge on the Oyapock River between France and Brazil heard tonight on France24. The Brazilians have FINALLY started work on the access road to the bridge on their side of the border in the beginning of August. The construction of the access road and the Brazilian border station is scheduled to take 3 months. So the bridge should be inaugurated soon now.

About time! Great news though. If road right through to Macapa can be brought up to a decent standard this will be a real economic boost for FG in helping diversify the economy.

How is work on the university campus coming along?

The university campus of Cayenne opened in September 2010:



They are still working on some buildings though (not all the buildings have been built yet). For example the university library was supposed to open in September of this year, but it's still under construction (it's now scheduled to be opened in the end of 2012).

That's how the university library will look (it was designed by RH+ Architecture):









BU = bibliothèque universitaire






And some pictures from the construction:

Some views of the part of the university campus of Cayenne that has already been built. Most of these pictures were taken 2 years ago when the campus was first opened.

These pictures are the most recent that I could find. They were taken in August 2012:





This one probably shows the university library under construction in the background.
