This week our Business Directory team reports from the Architecture category and showcases the Louvre Conservation Center. The Musée du Louvre in Paris, in a move to protect its valuable works of art, has established a new venue where it will store one-third of its holdings, the Louvre Conservation Center.
The new building is in Liéven, which is located in the north of France. The building designed by architectural firm Rogers Strick Harbor + Partners will be completed in October 2020. The building will house upwards of 250,000 artworks. The move to create this new space was spurred by concerns of climate change. The river Seine is thought likely to flood soon and the museum’s intention is to enforce the protection of its holdings.
