Museum Jean Cocteau
French practice Rudy Ricciotti architecte has completed the ‘Musée Jean Cocteau’, a museum dedicated to the career of Jean Cocteau, a French artist, poet, and playwriter positioned within his hometown in Menton, France.
From above, it looks a bit like a spider, with jagged black pillars sprawling leg-like over the building, backlit by white light.
Inside, more than 29,000 square feet (2,700 square meter) houses the world’s largest collection of works by one of the most multifaceted artists of the 20th century.
The featured exhibits were contributed by philanthropist Severin Wunderman, who donated his entire personal collection to the initiative, including 990 original works within a total amalgamation of 1800 pieces from other artists within his circle.
