The Marseilles Docks as a place of reflexion and meeting between territory and city, past and future, users and inhabitants of the place. The Marseilles Docks as a place of architecture which is an answer to a specific context: an intervention on sensitivity and place specificity, Marseilles in relation to the Docks, the city and the sea. An intervention on the Docks ground level to create an opened system connected to penetration, transparencies and new relations extending to the sea. An intervention on people flow to give different intensities to the place. We have been particularly attentive to how things are perceived, visual apertures, pathways and other features: light to create original atmospheres, the sun and wind as architectural/energy devices. Reveal the beauty of a place so that it can be shared.
