Description

Wilmotte & Associés is a multi-disciplinary architecture firm.The firm takes on an impressive range and scale of projects from large plants, stadiums, high-rise buildings, hospitals, hotels, theatres, museums, congress centres, and shoppingmalls to private residences.

Some of the greatest museums have enlisted the services of Jean-Michel Wilmotte and his team, including the Louvre (Paris), the Chiado Museum (Lisbon), the Museum of Islamic Art in Qatar (Doha), the Museum d’Orsay (Paris), and the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam).

Jean-Michel Wilmotte’s architecture is characterised by great care given to a building’s integration within the site it occupies, to clean lines, quality of materials, and attention to detail.

Wilmotte & Associés exerts true expertise in developing museums and exhibition scenography. Whether dealing with an old building or a new build, it is a question of cultivating deep connections between three distinct axes: art, space, and the visitor. The result of this work is ultimately a culmination in a real sensation of ease and comfort for the visitor.

Following an interview with Jean-Michel Wilmotte and an essay on museography, this book will present in detail the major projects designed by the architecture firm for museums, artists’ studios and galleries.
