Wrapping up the images from France, and in particular, Lyon, is the Musée des Confluences. Like the previous Lyon post, the museum is in the 2nd arrondissement at the tip of the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône rivers. Like much of the architecture I seem to be drawn to, this is of the deconstructivist style. The museum, designed by Austrian firm Coop Himmelb(l)au, is said to resemble a floating crystal cloud of stainless steel and glass. While I don’t really have any super wide shots of the building, I do have more abstract images from both the exterior and interior. I’m sure, not at all surprising 😉 We’ll start with the exterior.
Onto the interiors…
The next few images are some detail shots of the beams just inside the entrance.
Back outside to a different area of the exterior. The yellow tone you see on the structure was actually from a large yellow crate sitting below this part of the museum reflecting on its surface. I really liked the warmth it gave to the cold steel.
I know I’ve shared a lot of images in this post, but, surprise, surprise, there are even more here!
