Using a rusted metal-clad skin the Parisian architects K Architectures have made a formally bold, yet humble building that will evolve and weather with time, an object adaptive to its surroundings. The new archaeological museum in Soissons, France, pays homage to its heritage but is assertive in its place as a contemporary public building.” Architizer, may 2011
The only thing that emerges is an abstract and rangy building. Like a precious piece of ore, a “metallic endogenous rock” which pig material, submitted to natural erosion, is marked of red brown. At some places, the creature flatters itself with some ornamentation carve by laser (…)
The new archeological deposit museum will be established in this place, mashing up landscape and history… This deposit museum will mark its deference to the heritage but it will not forget to affirm itself as a public contemporary building, discreet but non absent. It proposes a new landscape, emphasizes the sensitive views, and buries its mysteries.
Since 2005, the agency’s projects are varied in size and program: housing, cultural public facilities (theater, library) or education (college, school) in urban, rural or historical heritage sites K-agency has completed a theater in Roubaix, a music school in Granville and a student housing in Bordeaux. Several projects are currently under construction, such as an archaeological museum in Soissons, the Kremlin-Bicêtre library and the theater of Saint-Nazaire. Since beginning 2011, the agency has been working on two new projects recently won, a leisure center linked to the ecosystem for the city of Courbevoie and a theater for the City of Sartrouville.
