Quai Branly Museum

Building: Quai Branly Museum
Location: 37, quai Branly – portail Debilly, 75007 Paris, France
Completed: 2006
Architect: Jean Nouvel
Engineering Firm: Bet Structure, OTH Bet Fluides

AE Interests: The “living wall” of the building started out very green and healthy, but over time poor structural supports have made irrigation and drainage visually evident.
