Yesterday, we wrote about a Reddit thread, “Accidental Wes Anderson,” that keeps track of real-world locations that look like the whimsical, color-saturated film sets for which the famed director is known.
Well, we can add this colorful new laboratory building at Paris’s Pierre and Marie Curie University, a public science university in the city’s fifth arrondissement, to the list. With an eye-catching design by local firm Périphériques architectes, the campus features an interior pastel color palette that’s both futuristic and playful.
In these new photographs, by New York-based lensmith Franck Bohbot, the building’s empty atrium and perforated-metal exterior take on a slightly eerie air—like the set of an Anderson-directed thriller. Take a closer look over at Designboom.
