Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec
PREV I NEXT
While MNBAQ is programmed as the extension of the existing modern museum complex, it also serves as the threshold between city and park, private and public, as the staggered gallery boxes cantilever to create a grand hall entry facing the city and allows for the park to continue on its roof thru its landscaping.

The new building for the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec – the museum’s fourth building in an increasingly complicated site, interconnected yet disparate – is a subtly ambitious, even stealthy, addition to the city. Rather than creating an iconic imposition, it forms new links between the park and the city, and brings new coherence to the MNBAQ.
