Studio Adrien Gardère, in collaboration with Bernard Desmoulin Architects, won the competition in 2016 to redesign the permanent exhibition of the National museum of the Middle Ages, Musée de Cluny, located in the heart of Paris.

 

The scenography designed by the Studio generates a new and singular identity for the museum, reasserting the significance of the site and its collections. The project develops a close dialogue between architecture and exhibition design with a special attention to natural light and outward views. The transformation of the museum allows almost all the spaces to be fully accessible to visitors with disabilities, following the natural logic of the visitors’ circulation.
