The Red House, Paris

Ten years ago, there was a petite house in the Bastille area of Paris that sat tucked away behind the boulevard, surrounded on all four sides by a deserted factory. Today, that little house still stands -- not as a misplaced residential relic, but as the heart of a Parisian locus of contemporary art.

Founded in 2000 by Antoine de Galbert, an avid art collector, the Maison Rouge (or Red House) encompasses over 21,500 square feet dedicated to temporary exhibitions. The architect, Jean-Yves Clement of Amplitude in Grenoble, was chosen to renovate the buildings and unify them into a coherent gallery experience, yet maintain a semblance of their industrial past.
