Foster + Partners layers coloured concrete to create Narbo Via museum in France

Layers of coloured concrete that resemble rock stratifications enclose the Narbo Via museum that British architecture studio Foster + Partners has completed in France.

Raised on a podium close to the Canal de la Robine in Narbonne, the museum is used for the display of Roman artefacts found in the town that was once a major Roman port.

The film is by Nigel Young of Foster + Partners.
