FRAC - RENNES (FRA)
Ahead of its time - in design and security
Odile Decq, Paris
The French city of Rennes is home to a distinctive building. Made from concrete, black steel and glass, the FRAC is radical in the best sense of the word. A museum of contemporary art, the building is a compelling sight amid its surroundings, providing a superb symbiosis of architecture and purpose that is immediately apparent to the onlooker.
