LAN Wins Competition to Redesign Grand Palais in Paris

11 March, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


LAN has won the competition to restore and redesign the Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées in Paris. The Parisian architecture firm will modernize the Beaux Arts museum — built in 1900 by four different architects to showcase French art and culture during the Universal Exhibition — while preserving key architectural details.



“Our credo for the new Grand Palais is to complete and strengthen its formal logic through interventions that return a sense of modernity to its whole, all the while respecting its traditional identity,” according to a statement from LAN.



The project calls for a new circulation space around the museum’s middle building, gallery restoration, an underground logistics center, a new climate control system, and building code upgrades. LAN also will open the large bay windows and passageways to return the structure to its original coherence and sense of transparency.
