Below is a series of photographs I took when I visited the centre last year. It was an amazing experience to actually visit the centre based on a unique concept to create an interactive social space with industrial monumentality.
The central idea for the design is to keep museum space as flexible and transparent as possible, which was achieved by keeping the insides free from any permanent building elements. This resulted in a structure that is turned inside out, revealing its inner workings.
The east facade facing Rue du Renard showcases all of the mechanical services, goods lifts and fire stairs. The services are colour coded, blue for air; green for fluids; yellow for electricity cables; and red for movement and flow (elevators) and safety (fire extinguishers).
