La Médiathèque is a stunning example of Art Deco architecture, and one of the finest buildings in London dedicated to the promotion of French culture. However, in the age of the internet and social networking, it must transform to adapt to more technologically informed and demanding audiences.
The process towards the modernisation of its activities has already started: the digital library Culturethèque was created in 2010, a new management software was installed in 2011, and brand-new lending machines were set up in 2012.
We are now launching an exceptional and unprecedented campaign in order to transform and redefine the different spaces of La Médiathèque, and make them more comfortable and user-friendly. The renovation is to start in 2013, and will be orchestrated by Bisset Adams, a renowned architectural practice based in London and specialized in interior design.
In order to carry out the renovation, we need to raise £ 1,700,000. This vast project will only happen with the support of individuals and companies who are concerned about the preservation of French cultural heritage.
La Médiathèque is a place of meetings and exchanges, of creativity and innovation. We know we can count on your commitment and enthusiasm to help us preserve it. Any donation, whatever the amount, will have a decisive impact in this unprecedented and ambitious campaign. Today you can get involved and help us safeguard an important landmark for French culture.
By investing in the future, you can make a difference.
