The Musée des Confluences in Lyon was opened in 2014. It was created by Wolf D. Prix of the Coop Himmelb(l)au team, which was founded in the 1970s. Many avant-garde groups from those wild years are now consigned to the past, but the Coop Him-melb(l)au architecture firm is more in demand than ever. Functioning as a museum of human history, this impressive concrete, metal and glass colossus truly does appear to float above the peninsula at the con-fluence of the Rhône and the Saône. This Opus volume deals with the origins, construction, function and formal appearance of the Musée des Confluences, and also offers a preliminary theoretically based evaluation of the architecture of the building.
