In my reports of my work on Foucault, I’ve often talked about the Richelieu building of the Bibliothèque nationale where I’ve been working on his archive. Initially this was in a temporary space, passing through portacabins and past a lot of fenced off-spaces. The last couple of visits have been in the part of the site which has now reopened, and there are some very nice pictures of the renovation at My Modern Met. The first tiny photo below shows the Salle Labrouste; the second the manuscript room I’ve been working in. Worth a look at the full article for these and more views.
