A sumptuous guide to a major new art museum in Paris, designed by Tadao Ando
Opening in May 2021, the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection is a major new contemporary art museum in Paris. It houses the collection of François Pinault—which includes works by Urs Fischer, Maurizio Cattelan and Philippe Parreno—in the city’s former stock exchange, restored and redesigned by Tadao Ando, who has reshaped this unique building into a setting where ancient and modern materials coexist. La Bourse de Commerce retraces the history of this venue, from the origins of its construction to the present, and reproduces sketches, archive documents, photos of the various stages of the work and in situ views. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of an emblematic monument transformed into a contemporary art museum, designed to exhibit, share and inspire the collection that Pinault assembled over the course of more than 40 years.
