Nanda Devi

An itinerant contemporary art gallery

Carte Blanche

Paris 2011

Exceptional site: At the bottom of the Trocadero, in front of the Eiffel Tower. This "Freycinet" barge, 1,50m widen, will accommodate a contemporary art gallery through the "museum island" program. It will be also a passenger vessel for thematic cruises in Paris, around artistic conferences. The rough steel brown patina of existing hull and new organic superstructure skeleton contrast strongly with the exhibition space in the hull, covered with a futuristic white.
