The Musee Hergé designed by Atelier Christian de Portzamparc is located in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. Secluded in a landscape fit for adventure, the Musee Hergé is a tribute to the creator of Tintin 13 years in the making.
Louvain-la-Neuve is built on a straight-edged concrete slab with a car park underneath. It immediately seemed like a good idea to disengage the museum from the town, better to move it away a little towards the woods. In this way, bathed in the light streaming through the large bays, the visitor is confronted with “four landscape objects”, which correspond to the general layout and Joost Swarte’s scenography.
Each of these objects has its own personality; each is a kind of character. Each has a specific sculptural form, colour and unique design.
