Expected to open in 2017, the new Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech (mYSLm) will be dedicated to the work of the iconic French fashion designer. The collection currently filed in Paris, will feature no less than five thousand pieces of clothing, 15.000 couture accessories and thousands of sketches and objects.
The new structure, with French office design and scenography KO of Cristophe Martin, will have an area of about 4000 m² for permanent exhibitions. There will also be an area of 150 m² dedicated to temporary exhibitions, besides an auditorium of 130 seats, library, restaurant, terrace and research library, equipped with more than 5000 books.
Oozing cubic forms, the building will be made of bricks in order to create a pattern similar to the plot of a fabric. But the interior, contrasting, was designed to allude to a luxurious leather jacket with light and velvety texture.
The idea of the project is to combine the construction, made of terracotta and concrete, and the surrounding landscape. So facade of bricks will be made with Moroccan land and produced by a local supplier.
To ensure perfect conditions all the designer is collection, the Pierre Bergé Foundation - Yves Saint Laurent worked for more than a decade developing precise methods of conservation. Therefore, the Marrakesh museum will also feature a complete system of temperature and humidity control so that the parts have the same quality in the new headquarters. The works should start soon.
