French National Library's 20th Anniversary since the inauguration of François Mitterrand

March 30th 2015

For this occasion, Dominique Perrault is launching a web site dedicated to the history of this major public works project, the last "Grand Projet du Président"

Images, texts, press clippings and more invite readers to live or relive the amazing adventure of the BnF, from Mitterrand's announcement of his ambition for a new national library, July 14 1988, to the conception of its architecture, the transformation of its uses and the appearance of its neighborhood in 2015.
