Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes
In Autumn 2009, Stanton Williams won an international competition to transform the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes, one of the six largest Fine Art Museums outside Paris. It will be known upon completion as the Musée d’arts de Nantes. The creation of this urban quarter incorporates several key extension buildings that will link the existing 19th Century quadrangle ‘Palais’ of the museum and the 17th Century Oratory Chapel on the adjacent site, which operates as a temporary art installation space. The Chapel will be accessed directly from the main part of the museum for the first time.
The new urban quarter will ultimately help to redefine the image of Musée d’arts de Nantes, which is still firmly rooted in its surroundings but is now open to new possibilities.
