Foundations begin for French National Archive

Prime Minister Fran├žois Fillon and Frederic Mitterrand, the Minister of Culture and Communication have laid the foundation stone of the new building of National Archives of France Pierrefitte-sur-Seine, designed by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas.

The project will gather in one building historical archives from 1790 to today, which will be available on both traditional and digital media. Containing offices and cultural services the construction will appear as a large volume, carved from the inside, it will appear as an aluminum foil to contain the archives. Design features will include glass satellites suspended over water basins reflecting light and its changes.

The new and the old buildings will be connected together via bridges and the work will be delivered in late 2011 and open to the public in 2013.
