Cité de la Romanité 2011 | Competition Narbonne
- Conseil Régional du Languedoc Roussillon
- Area (sqm)
The City of Narbonne in the south of France remembers its Roman roots. She was the first Roman colony outside of Italy – founded around 118 BC. The new museum building is created to emphasise this cultural heritage. In the centre of the exhibition is the "Lapidarium", a collection of stone monuments, which assemble 1500 worked ashlars in a giant, two-level walk-in shelving. It forms a space, where the voxel-based "Carte Nabonnaise" gives information about the original use of the stones as well as their contemporary historical classification. In the “hands-on area” which is called "Vitrines des Métiers de l’Archéologie", the visitor can comprehend the path of a piece of excavation from the dig to the presentation in the museum.
