h2o architectes has participated in the lecture entitled “Le Béton” (concrete), organised by the CAUE d’île de France in the context of the “little lessons of the city”. Jean-Jacques Hubert presented the project for the transformation of the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, currently on site. Built for the 1937 World’s Fair, this building presents a very thin concrete structure cladded in stone to create a visual impression of mass. The project reinterprets the welcoming spaces, renewing their magnitude and offers a better comprehension of the vertical drop of the visiting route.
