The Maison de la Culture in Grenoble was designed by André Wogenscky to mark the 1968 Winter Olympics. It has long been a symbol, a somewhat isolated object resembling the prow of a ship beached, as it were, in the town. In 2004, the building began its new life as a cultural multiplex after six years of reconstruction. Architect Antoine Stinco completely revamped stage amenities and routing, while discreetly adding a new wing connected to the old part by two glass footbridges. For Stinco it was a matter of "unlocking a building suspended above a green space, without resisting its architecture. I did not want to arrive at a vocabulary that opposed this building which symbolizes Grenoble's 'heroic period'...", hence the complete absence of lavishness. This is a new complex for a city that has always demonstrated a large appetite for culture - put to the test here with a sober, almost too sober setting - which seeks to be neither very rich, nor ostentatiously poor.

I appreciate the builder Andre Wogenscky for designing such a building. I liked the design and I appreciate him for the hard work that he had put to build this. Can you share some more photos of the building and also its interior works too? Tate Modern Tour
