Today we went with school to visit the brand new FRAC museum in France. Or at least, that was the plan.
When we arrived after an 1 hour long bus ride we waited a few minutes before the doors were opened.
Ten minutes go by, and we see inside employees, construction men and security running around stressed and being busy. Another ten minutes go by, and somebody comes outside from the museum to say that there is a problem with the security system and that they never had experienced this before, because it is brand new museum which was open to the public for approximately 5 months
It was really a pity because I was really looking forward to visit it, having a look at the architecture which is constructed from a combination of polycarbonate, concrete and glass and visiting the Design story which featured works from designers such as Charles and Ray Eames.
But there's also good news coming: despite this cancelled field trip, we're going to (try) visit the FRAC again later this year and we're going also visiting Ghent again this wednesday and we're going to bring a visit to the Designmuseum. To see my visit to the Designmuseum of last year, visit this link.
Our teacher is also going to give as a small tour around Ghent, so this wednesday is going to be an exciting day!
