Musée d'Art de Nantes featured in Blueprint

Blueprint interviewed Patrick Richard, Stanton Williams' Director in charge of the Musée d’Art de Nantes, highlighting 'the challenges of mixing the old with the new.'

The article touches on the new technology developed by Stanton Williams in collaboration with Saint Gobain for the south façade. A thin marble sheet is placed between two pieces of glass to create translucent cladding, mimicking the way alabaster was once used in medieval times to bring natural light into buildings, enhancing a sense of connection between the new extension and the 19th century building.
