There’s a new addition to Paris’ contemporary art scene and it boasts a very fitting name: Lafayette Anticipations. After years of waiting, the Marais space finally opened to the public in March this year.

Beloved Paris department store Galeries Lafayette commissioned Dutch architect and Pritzker Prize recipient Rem Koolhaas to create their fondation. The result is a raw blend of airy gallery space, artist’s atelier, and technological marvel.

Commissioned by Galeries Lafayette department store, this new contemporary art space in Paris is airy and has views of the Paris rooftops.Lafayette Anticipations
