MNBAQ Expansion

The National Beux-Arts Museum of Quebec was looking to expand and create a building that will help elevate the museum to the international level. This building will serve as a new entrance to the museum and create a stronger connection between the museum and the budding artistic community emerging in Quebec. In collaboration with my partner Kevin Conlin, we modified Allied Works Architecture’s competition entry. Through the use of light, materials and form we set out to create a space that will naturally guide its occupants from the street into the galleries. Throughout this redesign we aimed to respect the beautiful geometry that the original designers created and wanted its shape to permeate and influence its interior. Our main challenge was to create an iconic building that can suffice the desires of the clients but does not draw away the essence of both the museum and the city of Quebec.
