Musée du quai Branly
Paris, France

8,600 sq. ft Greenwall

PB-quai-branly-museum-may-2013

Project Description & Details

Situated close to the Eiffel Tower, the Musée du quai Branly, known in English as the Quai Branly Museum – nicknamed MQB – is a museum in Paris, France that features indigenous art, cultures and civilizations from Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. The museum complex contains several buildings, as well as a mediatheque and a garden. Designed by architect Jean Nouvel, its most noticeable feature is the stunning 200 m long by 12 m tall hydroponic living wall by Dr. Patrick Blanc covering the entire northwest façade.

Facing the River Seine with a park and small streets in between, the micro-climate creates a good environment for a large variety of plants. Patrick selected a range of species from the world’s main temperate zones, essentially from the northern hemisphere (North America, Europe, the Himalayas, China, Japan). A few of the species were collected in Korea and Japan, such as Elastostema umbellatum, Pilea petiolaris, and Ixeris stonlonifera. He also incorporated a few species from the southern hemisphere’s temperate zones, such as Berberis darwinii and B. linearifolia from Chile and Phygelius capensis from South Africa.

Morzine Aquatics Center
(Espace Aquatique de Morzine)

Morzine, France

MorzineAquaticsCenter1

Project Description & Details

Situated in the heart of the resort in the Dérêches area in Morzine, France, the Parc des Dérêches offers more than 10 sports and leisure activities for the whole family in summer and winter alike. Its Espace Aquatique de Morzine or the Morzine Aquatics Center is a leisure centre for visitors to exercise, have fun or simply relax at its indoor and outdoor pools, spa, and restaurant.

Designed by architects Fabrice David and the Daragon – Cheysson Agency, this two story complex has a striking zig-zag roofline with massive overhangs. Undulating in an irregular rhythm, the building features a broad expanse of glass panes for daylighting and maximum outdoor viewing pleasure. Located in an exceptional natural environment within the French Alps, one of the priorities of the architects was to integrate this massive and very visible building within its surroundings. Covered with fully pre-grown vegetated HYDROPACK® modules from Le Prieuré Vegetal i.D., the green roof blends into the landscape offering a beautiful “fifth facade” view for pedestrians who use the suspended bridge overlooking the building.
