Denmark-based architecture firm BIG teamed up with Fugere Architectes to create this proposal for the Musée National des Beaux Arts du Québec competition. The main feature of the design is a grand green roof that slopes at quite a precarious angle, but is accessible for people to walk on. The sweeping form surrounds two large facades that reveal the changing exhibitions inside the museum, as massive windows flood the interior with daylight.

  • Just as I thought, the first time I saw this. Skateboarding! But the edge would be too risky, some suicidal people might intentionally wanna jump off the roof!
  • Haha, I agree with Kevin.

    But I think it looks great! Doubt the roof would remain open however. At least safety rails would be put up
  • I see skateboarding possibilities!
