Paris revisited

  • Comment

Can it really be a decade since the Paris Library competition? Dominique Perrault just pipped Future Systems to the first prize. Now Kaplicky and Levete make a return to the city in a competition which promises to be as important as the library, for a museum of non-European art. Also shortlisted is Foster and Partners. With the entrants from France and elsewhere this makes for a veritable Who's Who of international architects: Ando, Nouvel, Chaix et Morel, Patrick Berger, Eisenman (the only American), Koolhaas, Piano, Portzamparc and Francis Soler are all on the list. The £65 million project will comprise 30,000m2 on a site next to the Eiffel Tower. Perrault is one of the judges.
