Opening spring 2019
The Bourse de Commerce embodies four centuries of architectural innovation and technical prowess. It brings together the first freestanding column in Paris, erected during the sixteenth century, with vestiges of a Halle au Blé (grain market) built during the eighteenth-century and topped by the first cast-iron dome of its size, constructed in the early nineteenth century. The site was then adapted into a Bourse de Commerce (stock market) in 1889. Now a property of the City of Paris, the Bourse de Commerce has been leased for fifty years to the Collection Pinault, which will open a new museum of contemporary art on the site in 2019. The restoration and renovation works began in summer 2017. The team is headed by Tadao Ado & Associates, NeM / Lucie Niney and Thibault Marca Architects, and Pierre-Antoine Gatier, chief architect for French National Heritage, with Setec bâtiment. Collection Pinault—Paris oversees and manages the works.
