The Neolithic Museum

Bougon, France, 1993

The history of Neolithic civilisation
Efficient project management and a striking piece of team-work between the architect, the curator and the scenographic designers led to the inauguration of Bougon museum just 19 months after the invitations to bid.
Built on one of the most significant sites of the Neolithic Age, the museum is an original eye-opener on a wealth of relics found in archaeological excavations and a well-focused picture of the roots of human civilisation.
Using a selection of key messages, the graphic design of the museum plunges visitors of all ages into thought about our ancestors, encouraging them to question our own way of life.
