The future Roman museum of Nîmes, an exhibition

Leave a comment

At the entrance hall of Carré d’Art you can get a glimpse of the future Musée de la Romanite of Nîmes. Present are the suggestions of three laureats, of which the one in the photo won the competition. Is this then the best one? Well, it’s you to judge. The exhibition is held until October 1st. Or, or for more, see the video the ladies are watching, here.

(Personally, though an outsider, I welcome the museum with open arms, Nîmes definitely deserves a good Roman museum. But of the three candidates, to be honest, none pleased my eye. They may look nice on computer, in an ideal light and with imagination. But in real life in a real city? Hmm… Well, I hope it’ll turn out better than how it looked like now.)
