The city of Taiyuan, 3.3 million inhabitants in the south of Beijing, has entrusted Paul Andreu the design of its archaeological museum.

It is with him, and in collaboration with BIAD, that Richez Associés develops the project, and specifies the organisation of the exhibition floors, the structures, and the architecture of the facades : the five oblique volumes of the museum are equipped with vertical kliplock sheets enhanced by glass panels.
