A newly restored masterwork reopens in Paris.


 
The first phrase of a 377,000 square-foot renovation of the Bibliothèque Nationale Richelieu includes the legendary reading room that Henri Labrouste completed in 1868.


 
Jean François Lagneau restored the space, now occupied by the National Art History Institute’s library. The entire block, embedded in the Right Bank, houses reading rooms, galleries, and facilities for two other institutions as well. The second phrase is expected to be completed in 2020.

 
In the $89 million renovation/ restoration project, architects Bruno Gaudin and Virginie Brégal designed a glass and steel bridge.


 

 
It connects the side of the complex that contains the Salle des Manuscrits-fitted out in the 1880s by Jean Louis Pascal- with the newly restored Galerie Auguste Rondel, designed by Labrouste (1870-72) with rows of lectern-vitrines and metal-grid walkways.
