Saint-Gobain Glass In The Primitives Arts Museum

Saint-Gobain Glass participated in the construction of the Quai Branly Museum (Paris). Designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel, the museum opened its doors to the public on June 23rd 2006 and is exhibiting various works of Primitives Arts.

Some 3,500 pieces are shown throughout its 3,900m surface area.

Saint-Gobain Glass supplied 2,600m of laminated SGG STADIP glass for the palisade which stretches 200 metres along the curve of the Seine and stands 12 metres high. This glass frontage also displays information on the museum.

But not only that!

Enhanced thermally insulating double-glazing units SGG CLIMAPLUS have been widely used: 1,400m for the glass roof and a wall covered in a decorative film suggesting a tropical forest; 2,200m of the curved frontage gradually ranging from opaque to transparent ; 2,600m for the dome of the restaurant; and an additional 2,500m on other frontages, with SGG STADIP laminated glass protection barriers.
