MARSEILLE DOCKS

Cities: MARSEILLE
Countries: FRANCE
Categories: MIXED USE
Designer: 5+1AA
Date: 2015
The redevelopment of Marseille docks will re-establish bonds between the site and city, users and local inhabitants. The architecture is a carefully targeted response to a very specific setting: the project weaves relations between the docks, city and seaside; the site of the old structure will become an open system extending to the sea through penetrations, transparencies and new relations; the arrangement of the internal courtyards is designed in relation to the various flows and their intensity with respect to the various locations.
