JR exhibits his work on walls around the world, taking advantage of the space to display larger than life photos that play on textures and viewpoints. He explored the Belle de Mai neighbourhood by inviting locals to study the history of the area and delve into their personal archives.

Pick up your map of the different installations at the Friche ticket office.
Visit the Friche’s rooftop terrace for a view of the installations. Accessible during opening hours.
For 48h Chrono, view JR’s work by rickshaw. Rickshaws leave from Cours Jobin every 30 minutes: Friday from 7pm to 8.30pm, Saturday from 10am to 12.30pm and 3.30pm to 6pm and Sunday from 11am to 1pm and 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Vieux Port Pavilion / Foster + Partners

Saturday in Marseille, France, pedestrians and city officials joined Foster + Partners to celebrate the completion of the Vieux Port Pavilion at the mouth of Marseille’s World Heritage-listed harbor. Minimal, yet effective, this “discreet” intervention provides a new sheltered events space on the eastern edge of the port. With six slender pillars supporting its razor-thin profile, the polished 46 by 22 meter stainless steel canopy amplifies and reflects the surrounding movement of the harbor, creating a spectacle that encourages pedestrians to linger.

Reclaiming the quaysides as civic space and reconnecting the port with the city, the boat houses and technical installations that previously lined the quays have been moved to new platforms and clubhouses over the water in an effort to establish a safe, pedestrianised environment that extends to the water’s edge.

The landscape design, which was developed with Michel Desvigne, includes a new pale granite surface, similar in color and durability as the original limestone cobbles. The simple, roughly textured materials secure accessibility for all, along with the elimination of curbs and level changes.

Spencer de Grey, Head of Design, Foster + Partners: “Our aim has been to make the Vieux Port accessible to all – the project is an invitation to the people of Marseille to enjoy and use this grand space for events, markets and celebrations once again. The new pavilion is quite literally a reflection of its surroundings – its lightweight steel structure is a minimal intervention and appears as a simple silver line on the horizon, but it brings a new focus, provides basic shelter and creates a venue for performances during this very important year for the city.”

Part city, part island and part Mediterranean, the sea wall is both near and far away, a symbolic strip of land separating the port from the open sea. This space where we see and are seen is a combination of inside and outside. This summer, the southern part of the sea wall will open to the public for weekend walks.
Kader Attia, an artist with multiple identities, has been invited to create artwork for this event. “Marseille’s port has always been a symbol for me, and a synonym of travelling. I imagine a project that is open to all horizons: the horizon of the city, the horizon of the open sea, and the coastline.”

Access via free ferry boat, departures from the J4, quai de la Tourette (between the Villa Méditerranée and the Fort Saint-Jean). Ferries run from 10am to 7pm
Departures every 20 minutes approximately.

MUCEM: Grand OPENING in 2 weeks!









Quote:
MuCEM by Rudy Ricciotti
photographed by Edmund Sumner

Photographer Edmund Sumner has revealed initial images of the filigree-clad Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations (MuCEM) by architect Rudy Ricciotti, which is set to open next month on Marseille's waterfront (+ slideshow).

Tying in with the French city's designation as European Capital of Culture 2013, MuCEM is one of several civic buildings set to open there this year and will be dedicated to the history and cultures of the Mediterranean region.

Ornamental concrete shrouds the glazed exterior of the museum like a lacy veil, moderating light through to the building's two exhibition floors. Meanwhile, an inclined walkway bridges out from the roof the building to meet Fort Saint-Jean - a seventeenth-century stronghold that will also house museum exhibitions - before continuing on towards the Eglise Saint-Laurent church nearby.

CITY OF MARSEILLE.

MAMO ART SPACE BY Ora-Ito.
Le MAMO: Marseille Modulor opens June 8 with the exhibition “Architectones” by Xavier Veilhan. OPEN TODAY.



A Le Corbusier Rooftop Gets a New Life as an Arts Space.
and named MAMO.


CITE RADIEUSE BUILDING

The French designer Ora-Ito sits with a bust of Le Corbusier created by the artist Xavier Veilhan.





One of the greatest achievements of the pioneering architect and urbanist Le Corbusier is Cité Radieuse, an extensive apartment complex in Marseille, France, which he completed in the early 1950s.
Often described as a “vertical village,” it has 337 apartments, a restaurant, a hotel, a bookstore and a nursery school.
France classified it as a historical monument in the 1980s.
When the building’s rooftop gym and solarium went up for sale in 2010, the French designer Ito Morabito, who goes by Ora-Ito professionally, purchased it as a collector might.


MAMO ARTS SPACE

“Like you buy a piece of art, but architecture,” he explained.
Honoring the iconic terrain became Ora-Ito’s self-appointed mission. Although he didn’t intend to turn the space into an art center, he came to feel that he “couldn’t keep this for myself,” he said. “It was a way to give back to the city I came from.” So he transformed the rooftop of Cité Radieuse into MAMO, short for MArseille MOdulor, a site for exhibitions and creative ateliers.



The overhaul was a three-year undertaking that involved a full restoration of the original rooftop structure, including the removal of an unsightly add-on, and the realization of design elements in Le Corbusier’s blueprints that had not been realized when the building was originally constructed.



“I can understand Le Corbusier without knowing him or without meeting him,” Ora-Ito declared.
MAMO’s public inauguration this week is a feather in the cap for Marseille, which has been christened the 2013 European Capital of Culture.


MAMO ARTS SPACE

Ora-Ito’s friend and sometimes collaborator, the French artist Xavier Veilhan, has the first exhibition, a collection of large-scale sculptures created for the space. During warm weather, the rooftop will showcase rotating outdoor exhibitions of established artists’ work; in chillier seasons, MAMO will present smaller shows of up-and-comers in an indoor space.





“Le Corbusier would be proud,” Ora-Ito said. “It’s an homage to a master.”
Le MAMO: Marseille Modulor opens June 8 with the exhibition “Architectones” by Xavier Veilhan; 280 Boulevard Michelet, 13008 Marseille, France, 011-331-4246-0009; mamo.fr.
