Architects Foster+Partners with Studio Adrien Gardère won the international competition for the Museum Narbo Via. The future building, located at the entrance of the city alongside the canal de la Robine, will be dedicated to Narbonne’s collection of roman antiquities artifacts.

 

The museum central element -- imagined by the Studio -- is a monumental wall (72 m long, 10 m. high) constituted of the renowned roman funerary blocks of the city, which will separate the visitors’ space from the researchers’ and archaeologists’ laboratories.

This wall, conceived with the most innovative industrial storage system, will offer the possibility to move and display in an evolving fashion, the collection of over 2000 lapidary Roman stones.

 

The permanent galleries’ scenography is based upon the plan of a classic Roman villa, with a central atrium leading to all the exhibition spaces. The tour of the museum will be like going for a walk in one of the villas discovered in the Narbonne area.
