Today the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, joined François Pinault to announce plans to convert the Bourse de Commerce in Les Halles into a museum displaying Pinault’s art collection. The space, formerly used as a trading point for the stock exchange, is prime real estate in the center of Paris, sandwiched nicely between the shopping on the Rue Saint-Honoré—conveniently the home of many Kering-owned boutiques—and the Louvre and Centre Pompidou museums. The circular building will be restored and renovated by Tadao Ando, with Pierre-Antoine Gatier, chief architect of Monuments Historiques; Lucie Niney and Thibault Marca of NeM agency; and Setec Bâtiment. Paris will be the second city to host Pinault’s public projects for his contemporary art collection; he also maintains three sites in Venice: Palazzo Grassi, Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi, and Punta della Dogana.
