INAUGURATION OF FRAC MARSEILLE. by Madame FILIPPETTI French Minister of Culture

The regional Funds(Collections) of contemporary art, abbreviated by the acronym FRAC, are cultural institutions existing in every French region to promote the contemporary art.




Kengo KUMA the japanese architect



































its nice, its clean, but minimalism in architecture is not my favourite architecture, for me its an impression of lack, coolness, a little empty.

an other example of minimalist architecture:the LOUVRES LENS Museum by SANAA.outdoor averything is fabulous, the big exhibition rooms with every art works TOO, but on this picture you can zee the big entrance/lobby of this museum....and you have No furniture no objects...nothing only concrete glass. its too empty for me. To enlarge the showroom and to make a smaller hall/lobby would have been more sensible. but shure the total realisation is nice, and its only my opinion.

every pictures from architecture.projet.urbanisme

hello douly i have a question, i will say it at first in french than i will translate....because my english is so bad.

cher douly, au sujet de l'hotel intercontinental qui va ouvrir, il devait donc y avoir aussi un autre immeuble attenant non ? n'était-il pas question de construire des logements sociaux ou autres derrière ou à côté de cet hotel ? merci pour ta réponse .

and now my bad translation in english :
dear douly about this hotel intercontinental which will open next, an other building had to be renoved or built close by or behind, a building with social housing or appartments, do you know more about it ? THANKS for your answer.

The frac is a great building. I really liked it. The current exhibition though is a bit disappointing.


Restoration of the Cours Ju Plazza (Marseille Street Art neighborhood)
(plazza is almost done)

CEREM. VILLA MEDITERRANEE OPENS TODAY
07/04/2013.

here a great report of Villa Mediterranee:
http://www.domusweb.it/en/architectu...n-culture.html
________



Stefano Boeri inaugurates Villa Mediterranée in France

MARSEILLE

Apr. 5 - The opening ceremony of La Villa Méditerranée will be held Sunday in Marseille. Thanks to the visionary architecture of Italian architects Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra, the Villa is located along the docks of Marseilles. The opening ceremony, attended by Stefano Boeri, involves the cutting of an Italian and a European ribbon as well as the unveiling of a plaque. It will be led by Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament and President of the Parliaments of the Mediterranean and Michel Vauzelle, President of the Region Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur. The inauguration will take place during the Summit of the Presidents of the Parliaments of the UfM (Union pour la Méditerranée) hosted at La Villa Mediterranée from Sunday until April 9. The "Villa Méditerranée, Centre International pour le dialogue et les échanges en Méditerranée" is a 2004 project developed by Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra (now in separate studies) and is a multifunctional building of about 9000m2, situated on the banks of the historic French port city. It will host cultural events, research and documentation spaces on the Mediterranean. The new building is reminiscent of the concept buildings developed by SBA - Stefano Boeri Architects - in La Maddalena, built on the occasion of the G8.



THE BUILDING IN DETAIL

The construction is characterized by a 36 meter jump suspended at 14 meters above the sea level and an exhibition area of 1000m2, illuminated by side glass, skylights and a glass walk-in floor. Below the basin, there is another multipurpose space of 1500m2 including a performance hall for 500 people. The visual contact with the sea is provided by a skylight porthole. A large vertical atrium connects the two main spaces with other smaller places, including meeting rooms, offices and a restaurant.

this building looks great nicer than i expected. go marseille go
Last information : since the installation of the video-supervision, the crimes in the center of Marseille fells with 30 % and I want to say to our stupid journalists who always push this city that Marseille has other things to propose that kalashnikovs or crimes that you can find in every big city.

douly i think this is one of the most "modern" contemporary view you can have in Marseille, with all this glass facades of offices buildings you could be in Lyon La Part-Dieu district too.

CITY OF MARSEILLE. CEREM. VILLA MEDITERRANEE. FRANCE

The president of the European parliament Martin Schulz summons(convenes) the first summit of the parliaments presidents of the Union for the Mediterranean region.

HIS SPEECH at Villa Mediterranee:
"Dear Friends,

I should first like to welcome you all here today and, on your behalf, to thank the President of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, Michel Vauzelle, and the Mayor of Marseille, Jean-Claude Gaudin, for the warm and generous hospitality they have shown us.

We are meeting here today in the city of Marseille, where for centuries the civilisations, cultures and religions of the Mediterranean have met and intermingled, providing a rich vein of inspiration for philosophers, writers and artists.

Marseille’s designation as a European Capital of Culture in 2013 brings us back full circle, duly acknowledging the part the city has played in history while holding out the promise of a bright future.

The choice of a building marked down to become the International Centre for Dialogue and Exchange in the Mediterranean as the venue for our summit could therefore not have been more fitting, not least on account of its bold, futuristic architecture.

It would be difficult to find a venue which better symbolises the aims of this summit.

What better place could there be than Marseille’s Villa Méditerranée in which to demonstrate our commitment to continuing, with optimism and pragmatism, to build an area of peace and prosperity both for and with our fellow citizens?"
