The newest addition to the Lille Metropole Museum of Modern Art is a perforated masterpiece. Designed by Manuelle Gautrand, this post-modern project encases brilliant works of art within a porous carapace.

As a clever solution to incorporate natural light into the interior space, the new Lille Metropole Museum lets the rays in subtly without damaging the artwork. The old 1983 brick structure has now been extended with these five labyrinth passageways, making this gallery a work of art unto itself.
