Herge Museum in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium by Christian de Portzamparc

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Article source: Christian de Portzamparc

Fanny Rodwell wanted to create a museum intended for the work of her husband, Hergé, the Belgian creator of The Adventures of Tintin. Christian de Portzamparc designed it as strong architecture, space of surprises, events and colors. The route is an almost narrative sequence, prolonging the art of the « ligne claire » style and the color, in a space-tribute in the invention of Hergé and in the comic strip. Joost Swarte realized the museography inside rooms, which is not shown here.
