The proposal for an urban itinerary, designed by Comac Architects, presents an urban path to extend “Marseilles 2013″ European Capital of Culture throughout the entire city. A total of 13 key-districts will be connected by the path and interspersed with urban pavilions, each focused on a famous artist from Marseilles. Each unit will offer a certain perspective of Marseilles, and will offer tourists a new way to discover our city and its emblematic districts. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Benefiting from the wide public transportation network, this tour will ease the traveler’s understanding of the city and will allow one to wander through Marseilles’ and its secret districts. As an invitation to emancipation from the regular touristic tour, this project could be an actual alternative, both in terms of cultural and social discoveries.
