The new Fondation opens in a 19th century industrial building renovated by Rem Koolhaas and OMA, his architectural firm. The architect conceived the 2,200 m2 space as a curatorial machine and introduced in its central courtyard a steel and glass “exhibition tower” composed of four mobile platforms. The 9 rue du Plâtre building thus reflects flexibility and adaptability, as required by numerous future projects. After three years of construction, this structure features 875 m2 of exhibition space, production workshops, an area dedicated to artistic practices for all visitors, a café-restaurant and a store. The originality of these spaces and the possibilities they offer reflect the pioneering nature of the building and foundation.
