Overlooking one of the most famous rivers in the world, the Seine, you’ll get the chance to visit a floating urban art centre. Paris Design Agenda shows the Fluctuart, the centre that’s going to break boundaries within the art community, and push forward to develop art and design even more.
Paris is always the iconic destination for your holiday, there’s so much sightseeing to do, and also so much design and art to breath at all times, either at a famous museum such as the Louvre, or even if you’re just strolling around the art areas around the city, such as Montmartre, where you can find so many artists demonstrating their artwork.
As a massive advocate for art and design, it was decided to open the world’s first floating urban art centre, that will open its doors this May, located right under the Invalides bridge, on the Seine River. This incredible art investment is called Fluctuart, that will have an area of 1000-square-metres, onto a three-story floating building.
On these different floors across the Fluctuart centre, they will host temporary exhibitions, a permanent collection, artistic residencies to assist all kinds of artists, since emerging to very well known ones. It will also share a bookshop, display many cultural events and workshops, as well as a space on the the top for a terrace, to enjoy the incredible view.
This floating urban art centre’s purpose is to promote urban art, and also all the artists, since pioneers to contemporary. The entrance for Fluctuart will be free and it will be open all year, providing also a space for you to enjoy the view such as hotspot for food and drinks. On the month that it opens, the first exhibition is from Swoon/Caledonia Curry, the American visual artist.
Gérard Ronzatti is the architect for the Fluctuart’s project, and he’s also the head of Seine Design. This amazing and innovative project features an architecture and design that sits on a industrial and modular concept, with the use of materials such as stainless steel ceiling and panels. So, if you happen to be in Paris after the month of May, don’t forget to check out this incredible art homage, and breathe more art and design.
