Rennes Metropole Museum / Guinée et Potin


French architectural photographer Stéphane Chalmeau shared with us the Rennes Metropole Museum by french architects Guinée et Potin.

The project is the result of a competition held in 2006 for an Eco Museum, and it includes exhibition spaces, reception and administrative offices, wrapped in a wooden skin.
