Bibliotheque Nationale de France

Renowned architect Dominique Perrault pioneered the use of metal fabric in architectural design with the French National Library. The project demonstrated the variety of applications possible, from suspended ceilings made of various forms in the reading rooms, large-scale mesh wall hangings in the entrance hall, sound-absorbing partitions in multimedia rooms and semi-transparent solar protection.
