Riedel, Dagmar A.

The 2013 exhibition in New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) was part of a Franco-American project that accompanied the recent renovation of Henri Labrouste’s Bibliothèque national de France in Paris. Henri Labrouste (1801–1875) was one of the most important French Romantic architects, and among his most important public buidings are the Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève and the Bibliothèque nationale at the site Richelieu in Paris.
