A new youth for the Louvre-Rivoli station
The flagship subway station of the cultural policy of the RATP, the Louvre-Rivoli station on Line 2, was conceived in 1968 under the initiative of André Malraux, then Minister of Cultural Affairs. In 2015, the station was the subject of a “a more beautiful Metro » project and modernization of facilities, while preserving its cultural originality. Now, nine new statues, unpublished moldings from the Louvre collections, decorate the station and new screens broadcast video contents. As a setting for these works, the station also boasts contemporary materials that respect the original bias. B.D.
