Prizker Prize-winning architect completes outpost for the Louvre in northern France
Sanaa has completed an outpost for the Louvre in Lens, northern France.
The Pritzker Prize-winning practice worked with US museum architects Celia Imrey and Tim Culbert on the Louvre-Lens project, which has been designed as a low structure covering an area of 28,000sq m.
The building sits within a 20ha site landscaped by Catherine Mosbach, and consists of five main structures made of glass and metal, including the 125m-long Galerie du Temps
and a separate auditorium. It will present masterpieces from the Louvre collections in Paris.
